Cherry trees I have known and loved

Filed under: Progress — Helen @ 8:28 pm

I took a picture of my cherry tree from an upstairs window on 5th April 2007, just as it was beginning to get going. I thought I would be able to take a better picture later on, when it was in full flower, but sadly, this was as good as it got.

My neighbours’ cherry trees are much better. Here is a lovely pink one.

And here is another lovely pink one, except I don’t think it’s a cherry. I think it’s a crab.

Possibly a crab tree

Here is a close up of the possible crab tree.

Even the cherry tree about twenty yards away, on the communal ground outside my house, has done better, and I think it is exactly the same make as mine.

If I hadn’t done all that digging at the front, I would not have the first idea why my cherry tree has been so feeble, but now I have seen how much rubble it was having to contend with, I don’t think it is feeble at all. It is a very brave and determined tree. I am hoping that now the rubble has gone, it will be able to be brave and determined about producing lots of flowers.
