I don't actually know the name of this flowering tree, so I call it a Crab Apple. As you can see, Spanish Moss likes it for support. It has probably been blooming for weeks, but I only noticed it a few days ago. It is shaded by a big Sweet Gum tree and a large Hickory so it is easy to miss when lots of bushes and trees are also in bloom,

Günter, I'm thinking the same thing. Apples do not naturally grow here, but I've seen fruit on Crabapple trees, just not this one.
One little "tidbit" on apples that I learned just a year or two ago from watching a documentary: Apple originated in Kazakhstan!
Evidently, gillions of different varieties. Guess you knew that!
