Flowering trees will always be some of my favorites. Moving back to a climate that has winter has meant having to learn new ways to make it through months of cold, grey rainy days. However, one of the perks of moving back to somewhere with winter was that it also meant there is a much more pronounced spring season! The days are still pretty cold, grey and rainy, but they aren't quite as cold, and flowers start to show up. Slowly at first, with crocuses and really brave daffodils, then you look up and there are trees that are in full bloom.
This flowering plum tree was found in Oak Harbor, Washington.
