Spring Is Busting Out All Over!



You'll have to pardon my gushing but it's been a long, cold, dreary, wet winter down here in the "Sunny South" and today was just a blessing for us all. I'm not sure what this gorgeous flowering tree is. I'll guess Bradford Pear and hope that a kind reader will correct me if I'm wrong. What could be more gorgeous? Happy sigh!

V, Looks like what I saw in Georgia when I visited and I think you are correct with the name. It's beautiful whatever it is. Happy Spring!

I was going to say its a dogwood but I guess I am wrong, someone else said you were correct .. whatever it is, its lovely and I wish there were more than little buds on the trees here in the still cold Big Apple

Lovely sight indeed! We're in the mid 60's toady under almost clear sky. Rain is suggested for the next few days, though. Don't forget your sunscreen, V -:)
