Our Blossom Tree



I took some pictures of this tree in our tiny front garden through the spare bedroom window this morning. We don't know what kind of tree it is and the falling leaves made such a mess in the autumn that we were considering removing it after checking that we were allowed to with the local council. Another reason for that is that it does block some of the light I want in the house. Now we have seen it in all its glory, I don't think I have the heart. Instead I think we should help it out by removing the ivy that could be strangling it to death.

It is quite pretty. I'm looking at two right now on my neighbor's lawn. They're pretty but they're brutal to me during allergy season. SNEEZE!!

Hi there One of the Guys. We are lucky we don't usually suffer like that. Perhaps I should check with the neighbours.

Thanks NM. I think so too.

That is a beautiful tree. I think if you trim it back a little it would be even prettier. Also not such a mess at clean up time.

jakill said...

Thank you Grampy. That is a very good idea.

Beautiful! Is it an ornamental cherry, perhaps?

jakill said...

Thanks Linda. And you are quite right. I discovered last weekend that it is an ornamental cherry.
