Trees in Tingshu’s Backyard

See a spectacular spring show

We’re in  Dunstable, Massachusetts (Zone 5b) visiting Tingshu’s beautiful garden. We’ve visited her garden before and last week she shared with us some of the beautiful flowering trees in her front yard. Today we’re back to see the spring bloom in her back garden.

From between the branches of ‘Louisa’, a ‘Prairie fire’ crabapple (Malus ‘Prairie Fire’ Zone 4-8) can be seen in the center of the backyard.
