Trees in Bloom

>> Friday, May 10, 2013

I’ve been impressed by all of the trees that bloom in the Spring here on the ridge and in the area.  Cousin Mike from Canada suggested I post some pictures, so here goes.

IMG_1297The redbud trees are the first trees to bloom out.  This particular tree is located near Darryl’s pond. 

IMG_0002Before the redbud trees finish blooming the dogwood trees burst into full bloom.  This tree is near our mailbox.

Here is a close-up view of a redbud tree.

And, here is a close-up of a dogwood in bloom.

IMG_0019-2Before the dogwood trees are finished blooming one can begin to see blooms way up high in the tulip poplar trees.  This photo is zoomed in quite a bit and you have to look close to see the yellow blooms.

In this photo I have zoomed in a bit more.

And here is an even closer look at the bloom of a tulip poplar tree.

Another tree that blooms at about the same time is the royal empress tree, also known as the royal princess and royal Paulownia.  This tree is on a neighboring property.

IMG_0033The numerous locust trees are also in bloom at the same time.  As you can see the trees are loaded with blooms.

IMG_0031In this final close-up photo you can see the beautiful locust blooms.

Thanks, Garry.

Lovely picts. Any orchards nearby? When apple and pear trees bloom, bees really get busy. They love fruit flowers, and there's a kind of wild citrus tree (forget the name) that they use to produce a dark honey.

I'll be posting some of your images on Facebook, with a link, so folks around the world can also read your blog if they like.
