Wordless Wednesday: In Full Bloom

Our tree is in its most glorious, the surest sign spring has arrived. We look forward all year to the short time when its in full bloom, so beautiful!

What signals the arrival of spring to you?

And if you happen to know what kind of tree this might be, let me know pretty please? It was there when we moved in, so we don't know.

Happy WW ♥

Gorgeous photo Katie! I believe that is the same tree that my neighbor has next door. She had to have hers replaced after lightning hit her original one. Will ask to see what it is called and get back to you.

Beautiful photo!!

Kelli said...

I am no help with the tree name, but I do think it's beautiful. Our trees are starting to bloom and our daffodils already bloomed and are about to die.

RoS said...

It's probably a Bradford Pear or a Cleveland Select Pear - you can tell from the oval shape that the trees' branches form.

Sharon said...

WOW. What beautiful flowers!

We have a local chicken fundraiser (outdoor BBQ) and the first one signals "spring" to me. Everyone waits all winter and waits in line for over an hour, just to taste what they had been missing for so long.

Uh, that and the flowers, of course.

Happy WW

So beautiful - great photo, too!

Spring for me is the blossoms on the tree and the bright green leaves that show up on our willow tree (they turn darker as time goes by)

Michelle said...

What a beautiful picture, I love springtime blossoms!!

Lori... said...

So pretty! I am just in love with the blossoms this year!

Brenda said...

Gorgeous blossoms.Please let us know what kind of tree this is whenyou find out. I live in northern California and would like one for my backyard.

Debbie in Nashville said...

What a beautiful picture. I wish I had a tree like that in my yard.

The trees and flowers starting to bloom always make me think of spring and I love this time of year.

Thanks for stopping by the other day.

Beautiful picture! Would love to have a yard full of those trees :) Kisses!

Nancy said...

I wish I had such a beautiful sign of spring! It actually snowed here yesterday, crazy. Utah spring weather is very unpredictable. But there are daffodils popping up all over the neighborhoods here and I love seeing them. Anyway good luck with the Kitchen Aid, I'm so glad I pulled mine out, the problem is now I keep wanting to make homemade rolls and I don't think it's such a good idea for my waistline!

I think it's a dogwood. That was my first reaction when I saw your photo. We have a LOT of them blooming around here.

After looking at other pictures of dogwoods and Bradford pears on-line, I think RoS is right... it appears to be a Bradford pear. Does it have a really strong fragrance?

"Miss" Anita said...

Thanks to you, too, Katie. I think you are sweet!

Cindy @ This Adventure, Our Life said...
