This is a flowering tree in front of my library. I have seen this tree for many years, but somehow always managed to miss their flowers. This year, I finally took some photos on my way in to the library.
The flowers were white, and looked very much like pear blossoms, but they were not. This tree actually has red berries by the time winter rolls around though.
I didn't notice the shadow of this umbrella tree until the pictures were on the computer.
This is a close up picture of this beautiful white flower. The branches spread all around, and droop down to form an umbrella-like shape. Each branch was full of flowers.
