Springtime Blossoms

After seeing the trees enter hibernation and shed their leaves in the Autumn Leaves photo set, fast forward about five months, and the trees at James Madison University are beginning to come to life again!  Before the leaves came back, however, first the trees burst into bloom.

Before the April 2, 2003 shoot day, I was a bit concerned.  The Sunday before this gorgeous, warm day, there was a freak snowfall that dumped a couple of inches on Harrisonburg, and I was afraid that the flowers would be damaged.  Thankfully, that wasn’t the case, and so here is the reawakening of nature, displayed here for you.

Remember this tree?  After being perhaps the most beautiful fall tree on the entire campus, this tree outside Carrier Library regains its beauty in a different way in the spring.

Looking back up the sidewalk, the tree in front of Carrier Library is just as beautiful from the side as it is from the front.

A close look at a branch reveals the sheer amount of blossoms on these trees!

Alongside Johnston Hall, we find another row of white-flowered trees, which make for quite a sight.

This tree is a fine example of an "urban tree", as it grows out of a square hole in the middle of pavement.  However, unlike many urban trees, this one thrives and is completely in bloom.
