Quite a few of these rather interesting trees, blooming pinkish-purple, in our area (and not only in ours, the video is from Greece, I believe)
As you can see in the close-up photo, the flowers are right on the branches...

“April 5, 1974″
Richard Wilbur

The air was soft, the ground still cold.
In the dull pasture where I strolled
Was something I could not believe.
Dead grass appeared to slide and heave,
Though still too frozen-flat to stir,
And rocks to twitch and all to blur.
What was this rippling of the land?
Was matter getting out of hand
And making free with natural law,
I stopped and blinked, and then I saw
A fact as eerie as a dream.
There was a subtle flood of steam
Moving upon the face of things.
It came from standing pools and springs
And what of snow was still around;
It came of winter’s giving ground
So that the freeze was coming out,
As when a set mind, blessed by doubt,
Relaxes into mother-wit.
Flowers, I said, will come of it.

Lady’s Slipper (yellow)

MY lady she rose from her bower, her bower,
All under the linden tree.
'Twas midnight past, and the fairies' hour,
And up and away must she.
She's pulled on her slippers of golden yellow,
Her mantle of gossamer green;
And she's away to the elfin court,
To wait on the elfin queen.
Oh hone! my lady's slipper,
Oh hey! my lady's shoe.
She's lost its fellow, so golden yellow,
A-tripping it over the dew.And now she flitted, and now she stepped, / Through dells of the woodland deep... )

I used to love my garden,
But now my love is dead:
I found a Black-eyed Susan
In a bachelor's button's bed!

A bit of doggerel, I s'pose, but it amused me and I thought it might perhaps amuse you as well ;)
