My Blooming Horse-Chestnut Trees

The large and colorful horse-chestnut trees are in full bloom now at my Bedford, New York farm.

Every year around this time, the horse-chestnuts, Aesculus, burst with gorgeous pink flower clusters. I have a pair of these handsome trees at one end of my long Boxwood Allee just outside my stable. I also have a grove of horse-chestnuts along the carriage road to my Summer House. And, we just planted an allee of young trees in front of the storage building in one of my back-fields.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
