About this time last year I posted a blog about the Snow Fountains® Flowering Cherries that I have growing in my yard.  Well guess what – they are blooming again – and again I love them.  This year they were looking really stunning and last night a storm was blowing in.  So in the near dark, twilight I shot these photos before the rain and wind messed with my flowers. Enjoy your Spring – I know I am!

Magenta blooms in the background are from Oklahoma Redbud.

I really like this form and think it is under-used in our industry.

I really like the 30″ sized Snow Fountains® Flowering Cherry as an accent tree.
