    Default Mystery flowers and apple blossoms

    The first picture is of some white flowers I saw at the end of May growing near a stream in PA. I think they are beautiful but have no idea what they are--the big ones, not the little ones, though they are white too. Does anyone here recognize them?

    The second picture is of apple blossoms which were blooming at the time too.

    Thanks, Margo. There's not too many fruit trees where I live either, so the visit to PA was really nice.
