Flowering trees

Diagonally across the street from my work building, I enjoyed these flowering trees.

This tree just can't give up on its petals, can it?

How about this one, near my apartment--pink and white blossoms on the same tree!

These are a big part of what makes springtime so special, Lynette. My verification word today is "joyin" and it fits.

I love this time of year in Oregon - all those flowering trees!

Did you notice that the beautiful blossom clump in that second photo is shaped like a heart?

I'm going to link this post to Guest Heart Thursday - I hope you don't mind, Lynette!!!

Gorgeous blooms, springtime in Portland is always spectular. I'm glad Clytie posted your link to Guest Hearts.

I love when the trees are part blooms, part baby leaves. Such a great time!
