Serviceberry

The serviceberry, or shadbush,
is a small native tree,
about 40 feet tall.
The starry blossoms don't last long.
Last night's rain washed most of the petals to the ground
or the nose, as Annie demonstrates.

I can see that you are enjoying the spring and the flowers. Nice shots. We are on the brink of winter with alternating hot and cold days.
Thanks for popping by and the comments you have left.
Hope you have a great weekend,

Our serviceberries are rather young and about 20 feet -- but I love them so. Such a sturdy fruit tree. Your shots are lovely.

They are pretty though, and look a bit like the flowers from the pear tree I saw today!
