The serviceberry is blooming. I feel like it may be blooming a little earlier this year, which may be because it feels like we went from winter right to summer and not much spring. I think we should plant more service berries. They can either be a tree (single trunk) or a multi-stemmed large shrub. In addition to the white flowers in the spring, they also produce small fruit which the birds like, and have decent fall color. The one thing I like about them over the flowering pears that are everywhere is these don't have that odd smell when blooming like the flowering pear has.
