April Flowers

It's Nature Photo Tuesday!

This is a tree in our yard. It's in bloom like this for only about two weeks out of the entire year (unfortunately!).

The blossoms are really pretty close up. I like standing underneath the branches and looking up. 

This is another flowered tree on the opposite side of the yard. It's small but pretty, although it's scrawny-looking when it's not in bloom. (Which is about 363 weeks of the year. Poor thing!)

It provides a nice pop of color every April! And it's a good reminder that there's usually a lot more to living things, whether they're plant, animal, or human, than meets the eye.

So pretty!! I wish plants could keep their blooms longer. You have such a beautiful yard.

Wow! Your yard is gorgeous and looks so peaceful. I think those trees are so very pretty! I love taking pictures from underneath as well. Have a wonderful week!

Gorgeous! What type of trees are they? I'm guessing crab apple or another fruit tree.

Oh those flowers are beautiful up close! Love your analogy. There usually is more.
