Tree Tuesday – Flowering Trees
There are a lot of flowering trees around here in the spring. Many of the plum and cherry trees are flowering already and some of the native trees are too.
Here’s some of the native tree flowers that I took with the close-up lens on my Galaxy S9+. I’m not sure what type of tree this is, it is hard to tell this time of year. I like the way the background kind of looks like a watercolor paint effect on this photo:
Here’s another picture of the plum tree. This is one of the first pictures I took with the new phone. There is also a wide angle version of this picture.
It seems interesting to me how different the flowers are on trees that have not gone through as many changes from breeding. There is such a difference in the appearance and fragrance of these trees.
There is no doubt in my mind that we have made many changes in the earth’s environment though our collective efforts over the years. Some of these changes are very beneficial giving us good things to eat from trees and beautiful new flower types to look at. Other changes can be harmful and it is difficult to see what will be effected by them.
Soon many of the magnolia trees will be flowering and air will become more and more fragrant. There are so many varieties of these trees, it is fun to see them all in the spring and there are many different flowering bushes that will be blooming as well.
I checked on my apple trees but they are not flowering yet. They might not flower this year, they produced a lot of apples last year and it seems that they alternate years when flowering. It is raining, colder and very overcast today so it is not that good a day for taking pictures.
The clouds and sky colors were looking nice a few days ago so I took this photo of the tree tops at sunset. I like the way the clouds kind of look like a mushroom and the camera picked up some of the greenish looking color in the sky:
