Photographer's Note

The blossom of the firsts flowers in spring time. I’ve looked to see if I could find what kind of tree this is, but had no luck…. If someone knows please tell me.
Anyway the photo was taken right next to my house, in the wonderful city of Braga.
That’s right beter to talk about the city because for the flower i've got zero...Braga is one of the most ancient city in Portugal.
It was occupied by the Celtas, known for Bracai (from there the denomination of Bracara, the current Braga). In century II a.C., the region was taken by the Romans who had built the city in year 14 a.C., with the assignment of August Bracara, in homage to the August Emperor. August Bracara was capital of the Gallaecia, the north of the river Douro. After the conquest of the Roman Empire, Braga became the political and l intellectual capita of the kingdom of the Suevos that accumulated the stocks of Galiza. Later it was dominated by the Godos, during more than three centuries.
