Probably a refugee from some garden. Don't know anything about gardens. What is it?

I think I like the first a bit better. The dark background emphasizes the white flowers.

Clint,

Yes, I agree. The background here is a part of the beach

Here are some apple blossoms. Obviously same Family (Rose family) - apple, peach, plum, pear, apricot, crabapple, cherry and others - all blossoms are fairly similar (colors can vary). Wait until the tree fruits, then you will know (or ask the landowner) . Nice picture, anyway.

penolta,

What surprised me was that they were quite some distance from the civilisation (as we know it today ) We have another climate over here at the other side of the pond. Thanks for the apple blossom picture

Here is a picture with both flowers and leaves
