The first one looks like it could be a type of Redbud. The flowers on them bud and then flower along the branches prior to the leaves coming out. Mine is more pinkish in color.. or it was but it died last summer. Here's a pic of it you can barely see the buds along the branches
I don't think the first one's a redbud... the base of the tree looks like it divides early and the bark is smooth. Do small green stalks come out of the flowers when it's in full bloom and does it smell awesome when that happens? If so, you're SOL because I don't remember the name of it. It might be an eastern redbud.
Second looks sort of like a hydrangea, but I need to see more of it.
The pea shaped flowers of both trees suggest leguminous trees or shrubs.
The first,is one of the Cercis species. Without out seeing the actual tree it would be difficult to say which of six species or further which variety. The most common Cercis are: C. canadensis (Eastern redbud) C. occidentalis (California redbud or Western redbud) C. siliquastrum (Judas tree)
The second, is a little more problematic. The picture makes it more difficult to identify, but the leaf shape and structure suggest it is Robinia x slavinii (R. hispida var. kelseyi x R. pseudoacacia) syn R x margarita. Robinias are commonly known as locust trees. This particular variety of locust is of garden origin, never having existed in the wild. The color of the flowers would suggest it is a named cultivar called "Pink Cascade".
It could also be Sophora Secundiflora (Texas Mtn Laurel or Mescal bean).
The first one is most likely a Cercis occidentalis clone. If you have a closeup of the bloom you should see the petal becoming lighter as it descends to the bud base. The eastern redbud is not as red in color, but closer to a lavender.
The second I think is a Ceanothus or California lilac. There are many varieties of the Ceanothus .
Metamorphosis saidThat's sorta like the cherry maple tree but they mostly grow all over canada, I don't think you have maple trees down south
HAHA....we do have maple trees down south. That looks somewhat like a Yoshino Cherry Tree (the tree's that Japan donated to Washington, D.C. which now heralds the Cherry Blossom Festival because of this.)
