Another wonderful old shrub on the property is this spiraea. I've been told by a neighbor that it's the variety called "bridal wreath" but can't be sure of that. Each spring, it lights up with masses of pinkish white blossoms.
Here's a close-up of the blossoms.
It's May, 2000 and the spiraea has erupted into bloom.
The spiraea has bloomed, May 2001.
The spiraea is in bloom in May, 2002.
It's late May, 2003, and the old spiraea has begun to bloom.
It's mid-May 2004 and the spiraea has bloomed.
Mid-May 2005 and like clockwork, the spiraea has bloomed.
It's the second week of May, 2006, and the old spiraea has once again bloomed.
The third week of May 2007 brings with it the bloom of the spiraea.
Mid-May 2008 brings with it the bloom of the spiraea.
Early June finds the spiraea still in bloom.
The bloom of the spiraea in spring 2009 was excellent!
It's now the end of April 2010 and the spiraea has started to bloom. I had someone from Spain write me to say that this is actually a deutzia and not a spiraea and I'm researching it to see if I was misinformed when the house was built to many years ago.
The spiraea has bloomed once again in early May 2011.
