Pandemic sketchbook: what’s blooming now?

The flowering trees were beautiful in April and May. I am using my sketchbook to try different mediums and styles. The top painting is a close-up of a dogwood blossom in wet on wet watercolor. The sketch below is done in oil pastels, applied thickly in layers, blended and scratched through with a palette knife .
