Tree blossom boogie!

With every sunrise a new shade of pink or green or yellow emerges on the trees and across the farm. These colors temper with the passing of the day to awaken an entirely different color the next morning.

The white blossoms you see in the first image belong to a tree along the driveway, near my next door neighbor’s house. I’m guessing that this must be some type of fruit tree, but then again, I have an ornamental cherry tree in Seabeck, Washington that sends out gorgeous pink blossoms, but bears no fruit. We shall have to wait and see what this tree plans to do!

The second image contains the open blossoms from another mystery tree which we explored just last Thursday. Still no clue as to what it is yet, but we will learn soon enough!

You see what I mean about how rapidly things can change?

PS - If you want to see some more fantastic tree blossoms, check out Crystal's blog Wide Open Wonder for her most recent post Flowering Trees & Botanic Gardens.


  1. It's amazing how many shades of green that nature holds. That top tree certainly looks like it will produce fruit. Go bees! I'm interested in finding out what the mystery tree on the bottom is.

    By the way, we have one of those pink flowering cherries and I absolutely love it.

  2. LilyB, you are so right about the shades of green - it's simply amazing! I love your bee cheer - it's going to be with me all the time now: "GO Bees GO!"

  3. Thanks for the shout-out! ;-) One thing that I find amazing, is how quickly the landscape can change once Spring kicks in. There are trees that I've seen around my neighborhood, that go from green to full bloom in only a week's time. Amazing!

  4. Hey Crystal, you're welcome! I totally agree - each day things look a little different around here.
