Well captured Tony. Cherry blossom always makes a good photo.Pity it has a short life. I think it`s out early this year, can any gardener confirm?
Nice but the bloosom dont last long, especially in this strong wind we have today.
LOVELIEST of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.
Now, of my threescore years and ten, 5
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room, 10
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

Every tree/plant is out early Mr Pyke, times are changing. This wet weather won't help small plants.
It's a weird season this year ! 22 deg. in March then we now have wintry conditions approaching May !!! not putting my bedding plants out yet !!
We have franes of bedding plants that we dont put out until late may but so far they juast seem to have stopped growing .still lovely green plants but not moving.,even the ones in the greenhouse are slower than usual..even with the heaters on.It will all come right in the end though....the forecast is warmer for next week. beautiful photo of the blossom tree,shame ut drops so quickly.
