These pictures of flowering trees and bushes are all taken in Greece. The top photo is dill(but I am not sure actually), then follows a tree which we called a Judas Tree, because it has many flowers but it doesn't bear fruit. The two last ones are an orange tree and orange blossom.

What is sweeter than the fragrance of orange blossoms? Miss them since I left Florida.

Vous êtes très productive, aujourd'hui !
Vos photos sont superbes .
En fait, l'"arbre de Judas" doit se traduire par "arbre de Judée", l'arbre auquel Judas se serait pendu était un figuier de Barbarie.

Gramma Ann said...

What lovely pictures. I can almost smell the orange blossoms.

Wil, the orange blossoms look very beautiful - haven't seen them here-maybe need to pay more attention :)

Reader Wil said...

C'est vrai Miss Yves! Ce que j'ai appris,c' est que l'arbre s'appelle l'arbre de Judas, parce qu'il a beaucoup de fleurs promettant beaucoup de fruits, mais l'arbre est trompeuse comme Judas. Il n'y a pas de fruits.Naturellement il y a plusieurs de légendes, qui sont très intéressantes

Lovely, I wish I could smell them

marina said...

Beauties indeed. And the smell "climbs" on my house from the garden,which means up to the second floor of our building!

Lovely photos. Thanks for sharing

Rose said...

Very nice indeed....love those orange blossoms. And your Judas tree looks very similiar to what we call a redbud. I think I will go google and see what comes up.

Lovely photos, Wil! My nose started twitching and wishing to inhale the fragrance of the beautiful orange blossoms.

Darla said...

Very pretty.

Arija said...

our nose must have been twitchin with all the lovely perfumes.
The first does not look like the normal garde Dill which has flat florets rather than balls.
We were in Olympia when all the Judas trees lining the collonade to the stadium were in full flower. It was an unforgettable sight.
Thank you Wil for your most kind offer of your photos, I'll just keep enjoying them on your blog.

I wonder why it's called Judas tree :)

I love those orange blossoms...I've never seen that before.

Wow! The colors! I love it when you comment in French.

Wil.....these are gorgeous !!!
A Dill Tree ? The Judus Tree looks like what we call a Redbud, which blooms with the Dogwood Tree.
Maybe that's why they both bloom at Easter? You have got me curious now my sweet teacher !! HA!

Wonderful series of blossoms! The orange blossoms I can smell..mmm!
I am in AZ and the oranges and lemon trees have fruit already!It is so exciting to see blossoms when we travel that we would NOT see in our own part of the world!

Brenda said...

I was going to guess a redbud also. I have never heard of a dill tree. I always learn something when I visit you Wil!

Janice Thomson said...

I'd love to smell orange blossom - I've heard so much about it. Beautiful photos again Wil - Your blog is always so informative and an exciting place to visit.

Carletta said...

Lovely color on both the dill and the Judas Tree!
Nice shots!

Etje said...

prachtig al die bloemen weelde, dat we maar vlug een maand verder zijn.

Groetjes

Reader Wil said...

Several bloggers asked me why the tree was called Judas tree.Well our guide said that one explanation could be that the tree has many flowers and looks promising, but like Judas, it is a liar for in the end there is no fruit.

Please continue to comment in different languages. I was sincere and not being a "smart mouth".
