I need a botonist.

Anyone know what type of tree this is?

There are a few by my house and they, having just bloomed, are gorgeous.

I actually know this one - I asked my mom the same question the other day, because they are all over right now and they are beautiful. She said it was a decorative plum tree.

The pink/red combo is much prettier than the yellow/green one shown on wikipedia.

I am not a botanist, but isn't it a Chinese Cherry Blossom tree?
