Flowering Trees

Believe me when I tell you that a Snowball Tree is a fast growing flowering tree (plant, shrub, whatever)...immensely fast growing. We planted one to hide part of a unsightly fence and it worked.

It started out as a little guy and before we knew it it grew into a huge bush. The blossoms are beautiful.

Ours is about fifteen feet tall. We keep trimming the lower branches to give it the tree-like-look.

I have changed up the photography here and introduced five different modes through Photoshop Elements and Lightroom. Don't want you to get bored of seeing five images of Snowball blooms.
