Fruits of cross pollinating beautiful flowers!

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to share some pictures of some of the blooms I recently got to enjoy of some of my brug trees that I grew from seed. Btw this was the first time I ever grew brugs from seed! Of the 8 trees I have 2 that have flowered and I am very happy of what they turned out to be. Was hoping for doubles but these are still very nice. I planted all these 8 trees from seed last Mid to late August. And it's been a year of waiting and taking good care of them and growing them out and I am now getting blooms! 2 trees have bloomed and still waiting on the other 6 to bloom. I encourage everyone that has grown brugs from seed to share pictures of what they got. And those that haven't grown any to give hybrid seeds a try. Research online on how to cross pollinate your brugs. It's very easy just takes patience and a bit of work. It will all be worth it when you get surprised with beautiful blooms!

These are very nice dark pink big blooms. I have a big hand so it might not look that big if you compare to my hand because my hand is big too lol I'm a 6 ft tall guy. From that tree it was its first two blooms but it already is growing more buds I think I counted like 6 buds it's not a very big tree.

Here is the other tree that bloomed right before the other one. It only bloomed two flowers too and its a bigger tree it now has lots of buds growing. It's not that big of a bloom and not that dark its a soft pink but I like that the bloom holds its shape even when it was super hot here in riverside it was 95 and the bloom kept its shape.
