Sunday stills this weeks is flowers. I took these the last week of April, and beginning of May. I’m out of town so I had to resort to archives. But, these really aren’t that old, so I think they still count as fresh. I’ve reseached the names of the flowers as much as I could, but the first one has me puzzled. If anyone knows the name of this plant could you let me know? Looks like this weekend will be beautiful. Hope you all get out there and enjoy it.

Very nice set of photos, I like the different colors of the trees. Our spring is pretty much over, early summer has hit in North Carolina.
All are so beautiful! I really love the cherry tree blossoms. We don’t have those in Texas.

Wilistead is an awesome place for pictures.
They are all beautiful, but I am especially partial to the purple leaf sand cherry!
Nicely done! I especially like the contrast of colors on the Sand Cherry.
The composition in the first shot is perfect. Cherry tree is my favorite! Gorgeous :D

My Wisteria has already bloomed and gone :( So wish it could have stayed a little longer. Lovely shots of your flowers today.
Lovely choices Elizabeth. :)
