We are blessed with a pawpaw tree that is thriving well beyond its natural range. Here are three pics of its blooms which are not yet fully opened.

Taken this morning.

Very nice flower! Where did you get that tree, Ron? Do you have a picture of the entire tree? I would love to see it.

Did you also know there is a mosquito in your picture?

Yup. Yes, there is!!!!

Third picture on the branch just below the flower on the right hand side of the picture.

Wait!!!!.........there is another mosquito in the 3rd picture. Can you see it?

It is a small tree but it looks even smaller because I am looking down on it in this pic. I can pass under the lower branches sitting on the Kubota lawn tractor.

it sure is a nice tree tho.
I'll have to stick with admiring yours tho as it probably wouldn't appreciate my zone 3 winters.
