I have no idea what the name of the above tree is called but the flowers are beautiful. The tree though appears to be in the legume family. Then the blooms on the tree below are wonderful in their own right as well. My books for identifying these trees, shrubs and wildflowers are stored away as yet. Any ideas what they might be? - Volker

Spring at Queen's Park
Saturday I did a short walk through Queen's Park in New Westminster, and I do mean short, since the park isn't all that big when compared with Stanley Park and other area parks. As you can see from the top photo the hills are alive with "buttercups" everywhere but there are other wildflowers such as the English daisy in the photo below. In German this flower is called "Gaenseblumen" or literally "goose flowers."
