    Isn’t that a flowering peach blossom?

    Emily - I don’t think so.  It’s on a bush in our front yard.  The bush stands about four feet high and about four feet wide and the flowers are a little larger than my thumbprint.  We have peach trees that blossom and they have a more wispy look to them.  This bush has like five hundred of these flowers on it.  They come in every range of white and pink.

    Almost certainly a non-native member of the rose family, which would describe flowering peaches, as someone else suggested, along with about a thousand other plants.  If you take a high-res close-up next time it comes into bloom, I might be able to ID it for you (I’m a local plant biologist), but it would have to be pretty detailed.  One of the little joys of nature is that to identify a plant you have to take highly detailed pics of its reproductive parts ; ).  Best way to find it would be in Sunset’s big Western Garden Book.
