I love flowers, trees and most plants….as long as they don’t smell bad or poke me! But, I am not schooled in plants. I know more about plants than a few people and a lot less that a whole bunch of people. But I love to watch them go through their yearly life cycle. I enjoy putting my hands into dirt and participating in the life of a little guy with leaves and blooms.
But again…I am not educated in plants. So, today when I saw this beautiful blooming tree a few blocks away i hurried to it and started taking photos. The problem is…I’m not totally sure what it is. I immediately thought it was a Bradford Pear….they bloom early and have white flowers. But then I realized this tree is not shaped like a Bradford Pear. I finally settled on The Dogwood.
I did a little Googling and feel pretty confident in my choice. However, if there is someone out there that would like to challenge my decision I am always willing to concede to one with more knowledge.
