1. Beautiful, is that a tree

or is it a bush. I qualify for a course in flowers for the beginner.

4. It's a tree that grew out of a stump

There were two flowering trees, planted right next to each other. They both appeared to have died, and were cut back to the stumps. When I moved in, I noticed some of the sprigs growing out of the stumps were pretty healthy and it did look like a bush. I picked the strongest and straightest, and keep trimming and pruning until, eventually, I turned the stump back into a tree.

6. Thank you, for posting the picture of the blossoms

So beautiful. They remind me of apple blossoms. It looks like a bee in one of the blossoms about 2/3 the way down. Very nice.
