A Flowering Tree







I did mess up the exposure, but they're still interesting, I think! Hope you enjoy.

1. That's very pretty.

The brilliant pink blossoms really standout. What kind of tree is it?

3. Thank you, my dear procon!

I don't know what it is, actually. It's not mine.

The family it belongs to just planted it in the last month or so.

25. It kinda looks like a Redbud


They grow wild here in Texas, plus people plant them in their landscapes as well. The flowers bloom before the leaves emerge.

27. Thanks, I guess they would not be happy in the desert.

Oh well, it still a pretty tree.

6. Thanks so much, CatMor!

These have been "corrected" as much as I could. You should have seen them before!!!

You are too kind. And I truly appreciate it.

9. Beautiful, as always, Peggy

Whatever would we do without your colorful and artistic nature photos to make us smile!

That reminds me of our crabapple tree, which won't be looking like that until May, unfortunately.

21. I agree with NRaleighLiberal and we can do it

Looks like a beautiful Eastern Redbud to me too. Redbud tree flowers come out before the leaves.

Thanks Peggy for posting your photos.
