Flowering Trees

“Flowering Trees”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

The spring flowering trees have already started blooming. One of my favorites and an eagerly awaited flowering tree is the Japanese Magnolia. I have written about this tree before, and my 2008 post is still my most visited post. This tree, with the big, pink flowers, is a standout in the early spring.



Another tree that has started blooming is the peach. We have two peach trees and both have open flowers where last week there were only buds.



When we were having those very cold days in December, January, and early February, I was sure that spring would be late this year, but I was wrong. Every day the flowers that appear show that spring is here to stay.

    Mine still have tiny buds showing. I hope they look like yours soon. Love the peach flowers – so spring like.

    Love the pink flowers. We still are too cold for spring flowers, but I love seeing yours. Gives me hope.
