Taken less than a week apart -the same two trees.
Eastern Redbud in bloom at sunset. Planted in my backyard by a friend, as a memorial to my parents.
It was their favorite tree. The blossoms cover the whole of the branches.
Cascades of white blossoms, like water spilling over the falls. This week the Spiraea is in full bloom.
“Spiraea prunifolia, commonly called bridalwreath spirea, is a species of the genus Spiraea, sometimes also spelled Spirea. It flowers mid-spring, around May 5th, and is native to Japan, Korea, and China. It is sometimes cultivated as a garden plant elsewhere. WikipediaScientific name: Spiraea prunifolia”
Is it full blossom or full bloom?
After being at home for so long it feels strange to be in the car. I drove out today to the Post Office, to deliver and mail some masks to friends and family. On my way home, I saw these gorgeous pink dogwood trees in full bloom. Good thing the name of the church is embossed in stone above the doors. I was distracted when I pulled over to take a quick photo of the blossoming trees on my phone.
Christ Lutheran Church in Millvale on Evergreen Road. Perhaps they stood out since it was a gray and gloomy day but these twin dogwoods brightened the landscape and were amazing to see. I did google the Legend of the Dogwood that was in the recesses of my mind , the symbolism of the blossoms and but the legend was debunked as no Dogwood grows in Israel. I think somewhere there is a postcard in my possession with the legend printed on it.
Eastern Redbud tree. It was a beautiful day today before the downpour of rain arrived Saturday night. Just look at that blue sky.
A friend planted the Redbud in my backyard as a memorial to my parents after they’d passed. Thanks, Ginny.
It was my parents favorite type of tree. The way the pink blossoms emerge along the entire branch makes it a stand out amongst the flowering trees.
Looks like blossoms. Doesn’t it?
Noon, Monday March 18th Columbus Ohio – after last night’s snowstorm.
Awakening 2. Signs of Spring in Berlin. Real time.
Yesterday’s post was of Grandson Charlie when he was brand new, just opening his eyes- from the 2015 archives. I caused a bit of confusion as he’ll celebrate his 3rd birthday in June.
Found Spring today in Zagreb.
