Trees

In NW Washington spring is decorated with Wild Plum Trees - sometimes called Cherry Plum trees, because the fruit is so very small and only eaten by the birds.  But the trees are wonderfully beautiful in the spring - growing alongside the road - in the woods - in fields.





In the woods


On farms



Alongside the roads


The blossoms are beautiful


Almost like an apple blossom - but without the pink

They decorate our spring so nicely

I am waiting patiently for the blossoms. This month will be beautiful if it doesn't get too hot.
Lovely pictures as always.

I wonder what the Latin name is for that tree. It can't be a plum because plum and apricot flowers are attached directly to the twig. They look a bit like our mountain cherry.

Is it Prunus emarginata? Lovely photos!
