the little tree that could

The weeping cherry is front and center this week. I have never seen it bloom like this. It rained yesterday when I took these pictures, but today it's drier and the bees are all over it.

We also have two wisteria and they are in fierce blooming competition with the cherry in the front yard!
This one's right by my neighbors' fence-

This one's next to our house.

I wish you could stand next to them - the scent would make you delirious.

Oh! These are beautiful! They take my breath away! What is it with the flowering trees and shrubs this year? I've never seen so many with such an abundance of blossoms! I love wysteria and was going to plant some in my yard but I couldn't decide where would be a good spot for them and then I read they could take up to 10 years to blossom. I suppose if I had planted one when I first thought of it, I would have flowers by now! LOL!

Oooh, I can just imagine! There was a house down the street from mine that I would pass every afternoon on the way home from school that had a mass of wisteria. Heaven! Enjoy every bit of it.

I love your spring flower photoes. We are trying to grow a Chinese wistaria vine, so far no flowers yet.
