A day of pink cherries #1

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 23 March 2015 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This species is called "Okame", which is named after a pretty woman. This is the agrotype of two kinds. It's English cherry researcher Mr. Ingram's work. This is also early type blooming in March.

What a show!!! What a splendid tree! I've seen one just like this (I've written about on your page)...now with leaves and flowers almost gone! They go away too soon, too quickly....Mind boggling spring, it brings...it sings..and then...disappears...just around the corner.

@Japanalia: The temple who own this tree is located just near a train station 出町柳 Demachi-yanagi. Commuters see this tree every day. How lucky they are !
