Snowball Trees

Along with the crab apple trees and the lilacs, the other main stunner in our yard for spring blooms was the snowball trees. The scientific name is Viburnum, but that seems pointless to say when you look at them. They are covered almost completely in big white softball-sized blossom heads. Each blossom head is made up of tons of tiny white blossoms, and feels soft and squishy to the touch.

Snowball trees are gorgeous, 15-foot tall round bushes. They are as tall as they are wide, and they have maple-like leaves that turn orange and red in the fall. (Check out the second picture in this post to see what I mean.) When we moved here in October, we thought the trees were pretty, but had no idea they were the blossoming stunners they are in the spring.

I couldn't help but take tons of photos of them, and try to get some with me AND the trees. HAHA.

It has been so fun being surprised by this beautiful yard throughout spring. I can't wait for summer, though. I am hoping for a big abundant garden!

++ Do you have snowball trees? I love these things!
