Weeping Cherry Tree Buds - April 2019
Another day, another look at a tree's buds that have set in our #newoldbackyard. Yesterday, I posted a photo of the buds from our Dawn Redwood tree and today is a look at the Weeping Cherry in the far reaches of our yard.
I haven't posted much about this tree on the blog, but that's not because it isn't interesting. This was one of the three trees we planted for Earth Day 2018 and is formally named the Snow Fountains Weeping Cherry. We planted it in the rear of our property and it appeared to have some positive growth in the first year. Looking at the buds that were set in the photo of this post, I'm thinking we'll have another bloom this year as the tree appears to have established itself.
This is the second flowering Cherry tree we have - the first is a Kwanzan Cherry Tree - that I bought after my first trip to Tokyo. This is a grafted tree and it has a shoot from the trunk that has emerged that I haven't removed yet, that tells me that the trunk is healthy and established. Last year, if you look at the photos, you'll see that we did have a little flower 'show', but I'm hopeful that this year we'll get an even better one.
I checked in with a few more trees this week and I'll get those photos posted in the coming days.
