An explosion of beauty indeed! I love the geometry of the catkins in bud, like little molecular models...
Thanks to your informative post I never knew what that was. That looks a little like my white butterfly bush. I grew up in the rural area not not on a farm or else I was not too inquisitive. Thanks for the lesson.QMM

Not sure if I have ever seen such a tree in real life - or maybe I did, but just don't recognize it now, but it sure does look very impressive...love spring flowers, especially flowering trees. Our blossoms did not last long this year, they got all burned up by the sun.
My small city garden had two wild cherry trees blocking the morning sun. My brother-in-law chopped them down for me to allow more morning sun in my garden. I couldn't afford the stump removal charge.Well, the one wild cherry refused to die. It sprouted new shoots from the trunk. I decided this tree was meant to be in the yard. The birds love it! This time I shall leave it alone.
