Blooms

Leaves are on the trees and hedgerows are blooming. Blooms line the roads, trails, banks and shorelines of streams, ponds and sea. 


Sometimes the blooms are unidentifiable in a distant row of trees 





separating fields. 





At times, blooming trees line the trails 





and one can identify some of them. The pink-white colours of the Wild Apple blooms make them easy to distinguish.





Pin Cherry trees are everywhere and are covered in blooms.





Mountain Ash is blooming now as well, its leaves reminding one of the orange berries to follow.





Sumac is distinctive too, clusters of creamy blooms erupting from rose coloured buds. 





On a rare occasion, an old homestead has lilac trees along a trail.





Some of the prettiest blooms right now though are on the Choke Cherry trees which are everywhere as well. 





My favourite photos were from the boardwalk by the sea.





Nature in late spring on Prince Edward Island is a feast for the senses.


Question from the post on Thunder Cove by Boud at https://fieldfen.blogspot.com/


Does the sand stain the way red clay does? 


The red clay of the island does stain sneakers and clothes. We use an old towel or blanket sitting on a red sand beach, especially in the wet sand. However, not all beaches are on the island have red sand, such as the beach at Cavendish and white sand beaches on the south shore of the island. The colour of the sand depends on the rate of erosion in an area.

Thanks for the explanation about the red sand.

The blossom journey is lovely.

I love the look of the trees in bloom, no matter what the variety. Especially those pink apple trees. Interesting to see the ripples of yellow pollen floating on the surface of the neighbourhood pond, and also to feel the slightly gritty surface of the pollen that's settled on my furniture! Uhoh time to get out the duster.

Beautiful blooms.

The glory of your spring and summer certainly offsets the inconvenience and starkness of the winter. Although, admittedly, the winter has its own form of loveliness.

Such beautiful blooms to see Marie, and always nice to know what kind of tree or shrub is blooming. My favorite early shrub bloomer is the lilac, with its glorious fragrance! So much to love about spring :)

Lupines not blooming yet? I ask because I found a little patch here and was told the seeds were picked in PEI. This patch was close to peak, some blooms on the decline but others still coming.

We move from spring into summer so rapidly, but the glory of these trees provides a wonderful transition.

You are so lucky to live with all that beauty surrounding you. Thanks for sharing and also for the wonderful way you describe everythung.

Angie's Recipes said...

All those blooms are so beautiful! I love esp. the wild apple blooms. Some plum and cherry blooms would be also wonderful too.

Hi Marie, I enjoyed all your photos. It interests me that late spring PEI looks so much like Seattle. Out of curiosity I looked up Charlottetown, PEI latitude and Google says 46.2. Seattle is 47.6. Since we are both in coastal areas I would expect our weather to be somewhat similar with about 1 degree of latitude difference. Of course that doesn’t take into consideration the overarching weather patterns in North America … moving from the west to the east. Thanks for another fine post. John
