With my kids I try not to play favorites. But with trees--I can't help it. After all, they don't have feelings, right? All the flowering trees have been so beautiful over the last few weeks. I have tried to capture some of their timeless beauty to show you here. However, today I am here to show you my all-time favorite of the flowering trees. I have 2 in my yard because they are my favorite. I like the leaf and the beautiful richly-colored blooms in the spring. They are especially beautiful right now. I present my flowering crab apple tree.
I am so happy they bloomed so beautifully this year. Last year there were only a few blooms. I hoped for better luck this year and my wish was granted.
And now for my second favorite of the flowering trees. I only have one picture to share because I don't have this tree in my yard and so I had to photograph a neighbor's. Sadly, while photographing it, rain began pouring down so I only got a couple. Hopefully, I'll get another chance. I present the flowering cherry (I think--any experts please correct me if I am wrong.) I just love the full ruffly (probably not a word) blooms. They look like little miniature pink pom-poms.
Do you have any favorite trees--blooming or not? I'd love to know what ones you love.
