This is our cherry tree that Ed bought me two years ago, after I told him how much I wanted one, based on their beautiful blossoms alone. I can't wait until we move into a house and can plant this in ground (instead of making it suffer in a pot, which, apparently isn't great for it). The first year we had no cherries; last year we had two. I'm hoping for more this year!
The rest of the area's cherry trees flowered weeks ago, so our little guy is a bit behind (likely due to the shade). Still, by sometime next week we should have gorgeous blossoms!
I always forget that this plant flowers, since most of the year it fades into the background with its broad green leaves. This time of year, though, it calls a lot of attention.
Looking forward to when the hillsides get coated in flowers, soon!
(also, I moved around a frame with the bathroom - much better :) )
