The cherry trees are blooming and light conditions were perfect for capturing their beauty. The blossoms are delicate and paper-like. The pinks are veined with darker patches running throughout the petal.
I’m really busy planting and preparing. If I disappear a bit, you’ll know I’m probably in the garden.
I love the grey-blue sky in the background of the above photo. This is a Yoshino cherry. I do not know the first one other than a weeping Japanese cherry.
This Yoshino is growing in my yard. The photo below is a Thundercloud plum also in my yard.
I’ll have a lot of pink ;). I just purchased a Kwanzan that was delivered today along with some other goodies I’ll tell you about in another post. Most cherries provide a bit of fall color. The Kwanzan has deep orange leaves in the Autumn and will grow to about 30 feet tall and wide. It grows in zones 5-9, full sun, medium grower
Yoshino is zones 5-8, medium grower, full sun, 40ish tall-40ish wide
