Semi-Wordless Wednesday

Blooming trees in our yard - but I have absolutely no idea what kind of trees they are - anyone? anyone? anyone?

Maybe if I had some trees I could help you out. Because I live in the arctic desert, I don't so I' can't. They are SO pretty to look at though. I like the red one.

Debbie said...

Uh, hmm, what kind are they? I vote for the pretty kind. Yeah, that's it ;)

Kat said...

Debbie and Heather--Exactly :-) We're calling the white one a "Snowball" and the red one just is pretty. Even my landscaper asked me what they were...no clue!

The Ridge School said...

Red Buckeye & Button Bush.

Beautiful!
Jenny

Kat said...

Jenny -- Yippee...thank you very much! I wish I had the ability to name more than crepe myrtles and wisteria :-) Oh...and your book went out today...should get there tomorrow.

Very pretty! I'm impressed with Jenny!! Love the crocs below too. :) ~Jill

Kat said...

Jill--Have you recovered from your weekend? And, yes, I am rather impressed with Jenny as well. I knew my bloggy friends could help me out!

Mama Peep said...

Jenny is the Queen of plants. She can identify anything!!!

I was going to vote with Debbie. :-)
Beautiful flowers!

Jenny to the rescue!! I had no idea. I've not seen either of these varieties out here. But they are pretty!

Kat said...

Patricia and Susan--I'll have to remember that about Jenny. My landscaper is here right now...and when we were deciding on plants, I had to show her other yards because I have no idea what anything is called. I'll just have to send Jenny some pictures and ask for names!

Meliss said...

Yep, my comment is "pretty trees" too. Glad that Jenny is more helpful!

Tina said...

Those are pretty! I love this time of year! :o)

Sissy said...

I am pretty sure the red one is called a hummingbird bush. Because the flowers are long and the hunmmingbird beak fits right down in it. Or, at least, that is what my Mom calls them. She could just be making it up though!

Rhea said...

Kat, you know I don't speak plant or tree. I've tried...my mom even tries to translate for me...but I'm hopelessly slow at learning.

Beautiful pictures though. I can tell you tried to go wordless...

Notice I don't even attempt to do the wordless thing...I can't do it! Just not possible...
