{white blooms} flowering trees...






Yesterday evening, when I went for a short bike ride, I noticed how many beautiful flowering trees there are right now... so many pretty white ones. It's a shame they don't last very long, although those few short weeks are definitely worth it. If only I could sneak a few branches from a neighbours tree to place in a pretty vase...

What's your favourite flowering tree? Magnolia, Almond and Crab Apple are high on my list...

There is a pink magnolia on my road that just blows me away every spring. But I adore any flowering cherry tree. So pretty, and they smell like heaven.

Beautiful collection of photographs.

My favorite flowering tree is the dogwood. I had two huge ones in my yard growing up. Runner up is cherry blossom and then Magnolia. Love spring!

So pretty! I have also been in awe of the lovely white trees especially when they line a narrow city street with brick townhouses on either side. I wish they would stay all summer! Hope you enjoy them on your bike while they last!
