Nectar-Laden Blossoms

Since late January this tree in my front yard has erupted in a snowy show of white blossoms. My poor tree is clearly confused. It's Springtime! We enjoy the warm weather—how can you not?

As I stood beneath the blossom-laden branches, a low-pitched humming emanated about my head. Bees, lots of bees, were taking advantage of the nectar bounty on this tree.

I was trying to identify a tree of my own - it looks just like yours - and it is blooming now as it should be - it is Spring in the land of Oz. Do you know what the tree is?

Andrew from the land of Oz (Australia) says it's Manchurian Pear. Thanks!
