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.
