Weekend Snapshot

These blossoms are from a small tree that was planted last year on my property. I'm afraid I don't know what tree it is.

Maybe you can help identify it for me? You can put your answer in the comments. Thank you very much.

Mary, could it be a cherry tree? It looks like one. Beautiful photo. Looks like it's being well cared for!

Kimmie said...

I think it may be a baby dogwood tree. It has the same type of blossoms. Not quite sure though. I will try to do some research for you.
Have a lovely day Mary!
Hugs,
Kimmie

Mary...I am not sure but sandycarlson may be right. It isn't a dogwood, I checked and compared the photos.

Here is a link I was looking at...

Hi Mary, That's lovely. I thought it was a crabapple. If you go to this link for the siberian crabapple Siberian Crabapple it has a closeup of a branch in flower that looks a lot like yours. Then this link has a variety of cherry tree blossoms here - cherry blossoms But, I'm thinking crabapple.

maybe this is an apple blossom.... mine's up too hope you can drop by.

the teach said...

Thank you everybody for the suggestions!

Luiz, please do call me Mary. Your English is fine and I am pleased to have you visit me and to visit you! :D

I looked at the links from Kimmie and Carver, and Carver, I think you may be right! But my photos do also look like a 5 petal cherry blossom... hmmm. I didn't look up apple blossom yet.

Mary ~ I believe it is a bradford pear tree, lots and lots of small snowy white flowers. They are abundant in NY and NJ. They are really beautiful at this time of the year. We have several in our yard.

Mo would be the guy to ask this question to, most definitely. I would guess cherry blossom. But, I'm a dummy on things like this.

Lovely blossoms! I have no idea what it is :)

the teach said...

Yes, very possible a bradford pear...

Travis said...

We went to see the tulips this weekend. I've got a bunch of pictures to go through. I hope they turned out so I can post some.

The fields were so colorful - I never realized there were so many different colors for tulips.

Cheers!

It's a beautiful tree and so are the blossoms too. I have no idea what kind of tree this one is, it will be fun to find out!
Happy ws

quintarantino said...

I'm not quite sure, but my guess would be between apple or pear tree.
I have the ideia cherry take a little while to give flower.
But they are gorgeous.

cherry blossom

Mo said...

I'm pretty sure it's not a pear.
I'd have to see the leaves better, but most cherries have narrower leaves, so I'm going for crabapple based on the blossoms.

the teach said...

Thanks Mo, that clears everything up! LOL!

Marilyn said...

They don't look like my crabapple, but I've seem crabapple blossoms that did look like that... and it's been a whole year since I've seen mine so I don't know.
