Happy Bloom Day! Make a visit over to Carol’s blog to see what’s blooming all over the place, near and far.
I noticed blooms driving past a Liriodendron in NW Portland so I visited this Heritage tree again and found it flowering too. Difficult to capture, most of the flowers were up high.
And right below it was a snowbell, Styrax sp., full of starry white flowers.
One can hardly ignore the dogwoods round about now, common as they are. I like the ones with the greenish white bracts.
This Lavalle hawthorn tree, Crataegus lavallei, was buzzing with bee activity.
