Placed in Top Ten in Blooming Trees – 2 Per Day “Just For Fun” Challenge February 21, 2009.
Featured in Blooming Trees – 2 Per Day February 19, 2009.

… well, at least I think it’s a cherry tree!!! We have so many wonderful blossoming trees in our area … I might have this one wrong!!! But whatever its name, it’s a sight for sore eyes after a long winter!!!!

Image taken on April 4, 2008 with the Nikon D40x, using the 55-200mm VR Nikon lens. Shutter speed was 1/2000 (it was a sunny, but very windy day) aperture f/5.6, exposure -1.00, iso 400.

    Very nice Lois. I think it looks like a crabapple blossom. My grandmother used to have a huge one in her yard.

  • Chelsea, it might be. If something is on my property, I’ll know what it is, but if it’s elsewhere, it’s anybody’s guess, lol!!!
