Chionanthus, I think


I think maybe this is a pink fringe tree (Chionanthus species)C. virginicus, or white fringe trees, are native to the North American South and East, unlike many of our ornamentals. I dunno what part of the world this one comes from, perhaps Asia.

Another gorgeous day. Almost too gorgeous, though, since it almost seems like summer—meaning my body wonders if we’re skipping spring—at least in terms of temperature….
