Flowering Trees

The spectacular spring show continues. More flowering trees from my neighbourhood.

Flowering Dogwood


Cherry Blossoms
I took this picture a few days back. Now the flowers have turned a pretty shade of pink.


I think this is a peach tree. I’m not very sure. Whatever it is, the flowers are very pretty.

Shilpa, aren't flowering trees amazing?! Huge trees and teeny tiny delicate flowers.

I have a different species of flowering dogwood, I think.

Yes, your dogwood looks very different. I have not come across those here. This one is called Eastern Dogwood. I have seen some pink dogwoods in bloom too.

This season is so pretty. Everyday I notice something new. How is it in your neighbourhood? I saw some pictures of it on your blog.

Thanks Prashanth.
I'm no expert, I just like going over books and websites identifying the flowers. Just my hobby :)
Your flower looks like a dwarf powder puff to me. Check it out!

Ranjani, thank you so much! I'm learning new things everyday and encouraging words like yours help a lot.

Beautiful pictures, Shilpa!

We have pink Dogwoods in our area. Since you live close by, looks like they must be blooming in your place too.

Thanks N&M. Aren't the dogwoods pretty? They are blooming everywhere here. I'm going to be in Atlanta later this months and hope to see the Atlanta Dogwood Festival.
