Flower of the week: flowering cherry

100315cherry

This cherry tree is at the front of my house (which is really the back), where it can be seen from the road. I’ve no idea of the variety. There’s something very pleasing about the mass of white blossom on bare branches, seen against a pale blue spring sky. When the leaves do emerge, they’re a coppery colour and in autumn there are large, dark red, inedible fruits.
