Kwanzan flowering cherry

A little while ago, I was happily wandering about in our garden. Everything looks so lush and I'm really enjoying all of the beautiful trees, shrubs, bulbs and early-flowering perennials.

The photo above is of one of our Kwanzan flowering cherry trees. Aren't the flowers just gorgeous? We've had this tree for nearly 20 years and it's always a delight to see all the blossoms on it this time of year. The bees seem to be enjoying it as well.

The tree is now about 20 feet tall and has been trouble-free. The leaves are a bronze color which makes an interesting contrast with the pink blossoms.
