Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Pink and Pretty

.
I originally thought this was a red bud, but now believe it is some kind of a pink flowering crab.  Truthfully, I am not sure it is a crab either!  LOL

In full bloom on March 4th in Pahrump Nevada.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! How I wish we were seeing this sort of loveliness here in Michigan. A couple more months yet. Enjoy!

Definitely NOT a redbud. Crapapple. Not sure exactly where you are at so can't give a possible variety.
Thanks for the happy spring picture. :)

Thanks Fran for the ID.
