Flowering Tree

Daily Image - 17 May 2011 - Flowering Tree

Whilst walking through our woodlot today I came across a tall, spindly sapling filled with these blossoms. At first I thought it was a form of Flowering Dogwood, but the flowers don’t conform. Do you know what it is? Leave a comment if you do. Either way, it’s a beautiful sight to see on a damp Spring walk.

    Not sure of variety, but definitely looks like Joyce got it right. One of my all time favorites in my landscape designs. The marvelous viburnum!! At least by looking at the tip of the leaf where the veins split shortly before reaching the edge. Great picture Gerry
