Pale Cherry Blossom

Every year is different when it comes to the Cherry Blossom. This year the dark leaved cherries seem to be coming out at the same time as their leaves, long before the more floriferous pink ones which open up before their green leaves arrive.

I'm always happy when they stagger their opening times like that so that when one passes there is still the joy of more to come. Ours are still at the early stages of opening but the one above had the advantage of a few extra degrees of heat in the City so it was fully open and begging me to let it pose for the camera yesterday.

Very pretty and a wonderful glimpse of spring.

Thanks Lorraine, I'm especially grateful to see any Cherry Blossom these days since the freak weather 2 years ago did so much damage to the best and oldest cherries in and around Edinburgh. Luckily the younger trees seemed to have handled it better and are still putting on new growth. I hope people will replant in the future and I'm so pleased my 2 are doing well.
