An update on this lovely Japanese Cherry Blossom.
This is the first time I think I’ve seen the tree bloom. In the first week of April, the first buds began to appear. In a matter of days both trees were heaving with clumps of stunning pink blooms, the bronze leaves barely visible in the riot.
It’s the 20th of April today and the tree is moving into the next phase. The buds are starting to fall apart, littering the street with a gentle pink carpet. The broze leaves have turned green and soon the pink blooms will all be gone and the tree will be back to the September 2006 version.
Watch this space 🙂
