Flowers on Trees

There is something so beautiful about flowering trees. Even here in the desert some of the trees flower each year, most of them have tiny yellow flowers that fall after awhile and cover the ground in a soft layer like snow. A tree that is showy and bold like a dogwood tree can take your breath away when it is in full bloom. Fruit trees can be stunning too. Think about the cherry trees that are celebrated in Washington DC and Japan. Apples, apricots and even tiny orange blossoms each in their season add to the beauty around you if you are fortunate enough to live near them. What are your favorites?

  1. We used to have a dog wood tree in my parents front yard. I miss it :( That's probably my favorite flowering tree!

  2. We had dogwood trees on my grandmothers property in Pennsylvania. I loved them. Her cherry trees were beautiful in bloom too.
