Cherry Blossoms

It's the time of year for flowering trees as well as wildflowers.  The cherries, serviceberries and of course the apples are all in bloom.  Driving around the countryside you spot the odd tree here and there along the road or along fencerows or the forest edge, covered in white blossoms.  These are some bright white blossoms I passed on the 7th Line south of Meaford last week.

I stopped along the road and got out to take some closer pictures and figure out what tree it was. It turned out to be a pin cherry, with amazing white blooms against the bright blue sky.
