Poplar Tree Blossoms.

We have this tree in our yard, we think it's a poplar tree.

Come springtime it has the most beautiful flowers bloom on it.

I took this picture of the tree this morning ... it's pretty misty outside, so it's not the best of pictures.

Isn't this just the prettiest flower? It's bright yellow with orange highlights on it.

We've never seen anything like it ...

And a closer look at the blossom ...

Can anyone confirm this is a poplar tree?

It's a tulip poplar, info here: We ate at a restaurant the other day and these blooms were all over the place, like a carpet - beautiful!

What a beautiful tree. And now you know what it is. The trees up north are so different from the trees here. I just love that tree. The blossoms are so pretty and colorful.
