A few “from the can:”

Forsythias:

Azaleas:

A cherry tree:

These imports are such an improbable addition to our Berkshires landscape, yet beloved by suburbanites, and understandably so:

…until one’s lawn turns pink, then brown, then yellow from smothering.

I am, thankfully, not a “lawn guy,” and so can enjoy them without reservation.

Massachusetts isn’t the first state which comes to mind at the mention of magnolias, but yeah, “we got that.”

This weekend’s incessant winds didn’t permit the close-up shots I had envisioned when setting out to shoot these flowering trees, but at least I got somethin’.

Pink ones:

…orange ones:

…and white ones:

And for Laurie B, who requested more insects, this feeble attempt to capture a fly on such a windy day:

Enjoy.
