Our First Cherry Tree - Year Two Blossoms

Happy floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland garden!" I love cherry blossoms and am blessed and thrilled to have my own cherry tree. This is its second year in our yard and, by God's grace, it is thriving.

The cherry blossom flowers don't last very long but they are an excellent reminder to cherish every moment of our lives.

The first two photos in this post were taken on an overcast day and the second on a bright sunny day. They were also taken from opposite sides of the tree.

This year the tree is finally big enough for an overview shot. I had to crop it a bit to keep my neighbors' privacy but you can get a feel for the size of the tree. It is growing but it has a ways to go to reach full size. I hope it provides our friends, bees and birds many years of delight.

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you and keep you this springtime and always!
