Portrait of Blossom Tree

I have been walking past a tree filled with blossoming buds for weeks now. At the beginning of last week, the tree was in full flower – it looked stunning and I could not help but admire the sight.

I have no idea what type of tree this is, but I do admire the size and beauty of its blooms.

When I took photos of the tree, some of the petals had already fallen to the ground. The surrounding area looked so pretty – just like it would in a picture book.

Seeing the tree was definitely an added pleasure to my walk. The blooms indicated that I was passing the mid-Mark of my exercise period.

I no longer see the beauty of these blossoms as the tree is now fully green. I do remember their beauty, though, and look forward to seeing the blooms once again next year.

Do you know the name of this tree and it’s flowers?

  1. It looks like a star magnolia. to me. BY the amount of bloom it must be a very old tree. There is a magnolia tree on this street that has the same amount of bloom. They are always a treat to see.
