    This morning was bright and sunny where I live and the Cherries are now in full bloom. This long row of what I believe is Prunus avium Plena has double flowers and green leaves with serated edges.
    They are about 100yds from us and so my wife and I enjoy them year after year. I hope you do also.

    For my next offering, I thought that this maybe a Kanzan Cherry that is about 800 yards from us. It's very pretty and only around 12 ft tall, there are several in this area. The sun and blue sky behind it made for a nice shot IMO, so I added one to the posting.

    It's the 29th April 2021 and this is my very own Cherry, Prunus Amanogawa, it is now in full blossom. It has suffered some damage over the years, hence some rather drastic pruning to one side, but it always cheers us up. It's around 15ft tall if anybody wants to know the height.

    The pruning doesn't look too drastic. They never really have a symmetrical shape anyway.

    I wanted to post this as my wife is so excited with her birthday gift from our eldest daughter. It has not arrived yet and won't do for some weeks, but this is the photo of her new Cherry tree. Prunus litigiosa often called the Tassel cherry. I will update the thread when it is planted and especially Spring 2022 with hopefully a lot of blossom.
    Now where to put it !!! Lol.
