Fleurs de marronnier ?

Not sure if these are chestnut blooms or not...

Whatever they are, they're lovely!

I have trouble keeping track of what bloom belongs to what tree.

Sylvia K said...

Beautiful flowers and wonderful colors against the sky!! Thanks for the beauty!!

Randy said...

Very beautiful indeed.

Jack said...

I have no idea what they are, but they look good, especially against that handsome lamp.

They could be horseradish blooms for all I know about botany. But I like the Holga or Lomo look.

Sharon Anck said...

Beautiful blooms and I especially love that second photo.

Olivier said...

ca ressemble pas mal a la fleur de marronnier ;) j'aime bien la composition (florale ;)) de la deuxieme photo

Stuart said...

Between my tree book and the internet I would agree with you... it looks to me like a marronnier rouge.

Very 'dreamy' looking photos!

They look like chestnuts to me. Ours have already bloomed, but I love them. So it's nice to see some from another city. :)

Halcyon said...

PS love that lamppost as well!

VP said...

For what I know they could be anything, but I like them very much...

EG CameraGirl said...

They look like chestnuts, a cultivated variety I rarely see here.

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Lovely, particularly like the second one, something very soothing about them, I think it's the colours.

Lois said...

I don't know what they are, but I do know they are lovely! I like the lamp too.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It's good they made nice with the lamp post, they complement each other very nicely.

Das Foto mit der Straßenlampe ist einmalig schön!

I've never seen them red before - lovely!

Lowell said...

It matters not the bloom
The color is the thing
It's like a common bird
What matters - can it sing?

Just yesterday it was
You asked me for a star
But that's not what you need
For you already are a star!

P.S. Love that 2nd shot!

I do recognize them Ciel but not 100% sure of the name.. I agree with Lowell, that second image is a gem!

Rendons grâce à leur amabilité, puisqu'elles poussent la bonté jusqu'à éclore dans nos villes saurées et polluées, pour rendre notre printemps plus élégant.

I don't know what it is but it's a gorgeous inflorescence!
