Beautiful Flowering Trees of Spring

While I’m waiting for spring to arrive in Wisconsin, I wanted to share one of my favorite redbud tree blossom closeups I took last spring.

I do enjoy showcasing our state Capitol as much as possible in photos, and I found a way to do that. This was May 2, 2015.  I named this photo “Capitol and Redbuds”.

Also the Saucer Magnolias. I have seen several colors of blossoms. Here is the light pink. I have also seen purple and yellow blossoms.

I also discovered a single specimen of a tree with beautiful pink blossoms with white centers,  called Crimson Cloud. It does not stand out since the blossoms are small.

I also discovered another tree I was unfamiliar with. The Red Horse Chestnut tree.  Hummingbirds like the blossoms of this tree.

The white flowering trees are also quite pretty. This may be a Dogwood.
