Spring is short-lived, and before we know it, the ornamental fruit trees have stopped blooming one after the other, and the higher front of the orchard is almost blossoming. But not completely! There are still a number of beautiful trees, the heyday of which falls in the summer.

Early summer announces the blunt-leaved hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) at the beginning of June, the old famous varieties “Plena” and “Rosea Flore Pleno” spread in Estonian gardens long ago. One of them was a blooming “rosewood” with light pink, the other with dark pink filling. I called them that as a child, because these gorgeous, lush bunches blooming reminded me of miniature rose flowers. In recent times, the most common variety is probably “Pauls’s Scarlet” with raspberry red filling. In my opinion, the “Crimson Cloud” variety of the same color but simple flower, which has often been found in garden stores lately, is also quite interesting. This variety also boasts red fruits in autumn, others do not show much fruit.
