Flowering Cherry Tree Makes Excellent Umbrella

Flowering Cherry TreeWell, it’s April and our Cherry tree is in full bloom! It’s just beautiful this time of year. This one is a flowering cherry tree so it doesn’t bear fruit (it’s kind of like the ones you see this time of year in Washington D.C.).

It got its shape because the leader branch was damaged in a storm and began to grow forward instead of up.

Visually, it makes a wonderful “umbrella” over the entrance to our back yard. And while the flowers don’t last, the leaves continue to provide shade for our guests all summer long. It really is a wonderful tree to have!
