Thursday Tree Love ~3: The Pink Tree

The Pink Tree

There are always FLOWERS for those who want to see them.

Henry Matisse

I’ve waited to see this tree bloom since September 2020. This tree is one from my daughter’s school campus. The pink flowers look like rose to me, but I’m not sure if they are roses.

The best thing about the trees and the landscape in these countries are the colors. They are visually pleasing to our eyes. A constant reminder of beauty. Like Wordsworth quoted,

For oft when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood
They flash upon that inward eye
which is a bliss of solitude.

Unlike India where the smallest of the flowers bring anything from mild to wild fragrance to our senses, here some are only about appealing to our visual senses. Some of us are allergic to the fragrances, but when it comes to capturing moments through our eyes, it is pure joy.

This is one such beautiful tree. I am yet to find out the name of this. It looks like roses, but it could be a variation of flowering cherry almond . I will update this post once I find the name soon.

I am Participating in Parul’s Thursday Tree Love Edition.

Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on Parul’s blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell her where did you spot the tree and link it back to her post in her blog.

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog (ramblinwitham). Just a guess and I hope I don’t lead you astray but judging from the tree bark this tree may be a flowering cherry. No matter what it is, it is pretty.

    1. Thanks AM for dropping by! Yes, I am also thinking on the same lines, by the flowers now. Thanks a lot for telling a bit more about the tree. I will check the structure of the tree going forward!
