Spring Bouquet

For the last couple of weeks, I've been taking photos of the flowers that have sprung up in my neighborhood. First were the crocuses and other early blooms. More recently, it's daffodils and tulips.

This could be either a Chorisia or a Magnolia, I think.

Red Cherry Blossom? (Click to enlarge)


The best I can surmise, this is
a vivid pink (almost red) cherry blossom.

I used to see these all the time, growing up
in Central Pennsylvania. I can't identify it,
even through a thorough web search. Anyone?

Moral:
Flowers don't always give up their names easily.
