Spring in the Woods

As we drove through the woods, the spring blooms were eye-catchers.
The native azaleas are some of my favorites.

These were actually buds, but they were quite striking.

I am pretty sure this is a crabapple. They are not common in our woods.

There were also many white blooming plum trees. And then this one that might be a cherry. I just was not sure, but it was so lovely. Last spring, I  attended a lecture on flowers and learned that the parts can be deceiving, so I will go out on a limb, so to speak, and say it is the anthers that have the red that give this a polkadot look.
