I look forward to the drive to Eufaula from Florida in the springtime. You just never know what flowering subject will make it's debut from one week to the next. I saw the most amazing trees filled from limb to limb with beautiful white blossoms and what a spectacular show they made all the way from Tallahassee to Eufaula.
Their beauty lined the roads and graced many lawns. I found myself saying to myself, " I am going to have to plant one of these amazing trees just as soon as I can find one." I couldn't wait to find out just what they were.
For as many years as we had been going back and forth from FL to Eufaula I had never seen them before. It's hard to leave warm sunny Florida in the winter months so our timing this year was just right to see these pretty spring beauties. You can only imagine my joy when I found that the Shabby Old House had her very own gloriously white flowering tree.
I got dizzy looking upward into all the blossoms.
And when I couldn't look up anymore I decided to take a walk around the town. Eufaula is such a beautiful town in the spring. The trees were everywhere and it wasn't until I went to see my dear friend that I figured out exactly what they were. In the fall the trees lining the roads in my friends neighborhood are the most beautiful shades of autumn. She told me that her Grand Daddy had lovingly planted them and to my surprise those very same beautiful trees were covered in white blossoms. The mystery was solved
They were Flowering Pears. So if you want to beautify your corner of the world I can assure you that you won't be disappointed with this beautiful tree, unless of course you have allergies. To that I give you my sincere apology because I plan to plant one more tree!
I am joining Kathleen for White Wednesday.
