My Side Yard Weeping Cherry Tree





The weeping cherry tree in the side yard is now in full bloom. This tree has white blossoms that are now slowly cascading down on my little girl reading under the tree. I always wonder what she is reading. Could it be Anne of Green Gables or could it be Little Women?
If you click on the photos you will notice that each individual blossom has a pink cup where the blossom is attached to the tree, then a white blossom and finally a yellow center in the middle of the blossom. Oh, and the little girl reading is relaxing in a plot of Creeping Jenny.

Jack/Joann: What a great little tree. It is blooming as much as any cherry tree that I've seen. I like the way the weeping cherry tree is putting on a great show.
