I thought I would share with you some of the trees that are blooming in our yard now. The road we live on has a few beautiful trees on it, but people always seem to stop out from our house and take pictures of our trees every year.
Our fullest tree is this cherry blossom… we love the color and abundance of the blossoms.
Next is our red bud tree. It got struck by lightening a few years ago that split it so we’ve been trying to save it ever since. Our neighbors tell us when they come by they are glad we are trying as they love this tree. It’s not as full of blossoms as it used to be, but there are new limbs and flowers coming out this year.
Our Japanese Maple is a favorite as well. At certain points in the season it’s so bright red it almost looks on fire.
We also have two Dogwood trees that are so pretty when they bloom. A storm this winter with really bad wind destroyed both of them. One so much we thought we might loose it all together. But it’s blooming so hopefully it will heal and grow back more.
We have more trees on the property but the ones in the front are my favorite and I think the prettiest. Do you have a favorite tree this time of year?
