Trying to confirm the name of this. I always thought tulip tree, but it seems those have yellow and orange flowers?

I looked again for blooming trees and found so many different petals. What a dramatic difference in so short a time.

Thursday

The tree that had only one blossom on Thursday had completely opened by Saturday morning.

Here’s another before and after.

On Thursday they are just about to open

I like the bee that I happened to catch in this one.

Here are some more petals. I wish I could identify these trees. I typically think of the classic cherry blossoms as being pink, but last year I did see some white ones on a farm I visited.

Are they some kind of ornamental apple or cherry tree? They do not produce fruit.

This tree does not produce any fruit so I think it’s an ornamental cherry… Maybe? They look like cherry blossoms.

pink blossoms on tree maybe cherry
Possible cherry blossoms. They have a faint sweet scent.

Unfortunately we are supposed to get lots of rain soon. I hope it doesn’t wash all these blossoms away.

I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. The idea is to post every day, except Sundays, and end up with one post for each letter of the alphabet. It’s a good challenge to help me to blog every day.
