Today's Flowers #90: Yoshino Cherry Blossom

I left Taiwan on April 15 to the US, the main purpose is to visit our daughter's family in DC. I was told that I missed out the cherry blossom season in Washington already. On my way to DC, I stopped by our home on the Cape Cod for two days. The Yoshino cherry tree in our garden was in full bloom.

I initially planted three of them seven years ago, two died, the replacements died also. Thus out 5 planted only one survived. It was the first time that I came back on the Cape in the early spring to see it in full bloom.

The whole tree is covered with flowers. I arrived just at the right time, none of the flowers were on the ground yet.

You can see I am very proud of this Yoshino Cherry Tree.
