Weeping Cherry

(Prunus subhirtella 'Pendula')

This tree is planted right next to the house, right beside the patio. We have to remember to look up to see it. It is really spectacular this year.







Stay tuned for the Yoshino Cherry trees!

  1. Very pretty. There is one of these on my way to class here on campus and I was excited to see this morning that the first buds are just starting to open.

  8. That is just beautiful! I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be hardy in my area, most cherries are not.

  9. How absolutely gorgeous, Phillip! I love that delicate pink colour. They remind me of our apple orchards here in the Annapolis Valley which will be awash with that same blush pink sometime in May.

  12. What a wonderful canopy of color! My viburnum (don't know species) has a ton of fragrant pink blooms this year--more than ever before. It's heavenly. Looking forward to the Yoshino photos. Happy Easter!

  17. Your home is so beautiful but especially now. Hugs to you today. You have convinced me to get a white picket fence. That didn't take much convincing.
