The Orchid Tree in our front yard has exploded with blossoms this year.
We've never seen so many flowers on it. The scent of the orchids and the Hawthorn
flowers below smell really nice whenever we come and go from our front door.
They're a treat for the eyes too. So pretty!
One of our neighbors has an orchid tree and all the blossoms on it are white.
All of ours have pink on them. Some are mostly pink...
And, some are lighter. But, all are gorgeous. I love them!
I'd never seen a tree like this until we moved here years ago.
It almost died a couple times during cold winters but pulled through.
It has a weird shape and even leans. But, we wouldn't want to cut it down
because of the amazing flowers. The leaves are pretty too. They're almost heart shaped.
One of the amazing and beautiful treats of spring!
