The Trees Are Blooming

I woke up this morning and watched the sun disappear. It was replaced by dark clouds, high winds, thunder, and eventually horizontal rain. However, I decided to brave the elements to bring you pictures of some of our blooming trees.

Our Weeping Cherry Tree has just begun to bloom. This tree is gorgeous once it is in full bloom.

April 2010 318This tree, while pretty, is not one I would recommend. It is a locust and its tendency to send out runners is extremely annoying!

April 2010 314 By the time the winds have subsided today, the ground will be covered in the petals from our flowering pear trees. I am so glad that our fruit bearing trees have not started to bloom yet.

What is blooming in your yard? If, like me, your blooms are limited to bulbs and trees, you will enjoy visiting (and living vicariously through) Bloomin’ Tuesday to see what is blooming in gardens around the country!

I'm glad you are focusing on flowering trees and their buds. I tend to overlook them and will be sure to pay more attention from now on. The cherry is lovely against the gray sky. Great post! Jean
