Oh, how I love flowering trees. It's my favorite sign of spring. They are so fleeting and so beautiful. I've photographed a Magnolia tree before but this spring I made an effort to capture a few other flowering trees as well. The top image is a Dogwood and below there are two different magnolia trees, a couple of cherry trees and a pear tree. (I think!) There are so many variations and varieties but what I love the most are the subtle differences in pinks, blues and whites that you see in these images.

Do you have flowering trees in your yard or near your house? Do you have a favorite?
