Bloomin' tree

Here's a close-up of the flowers on our ornamental prunus. I don't know if it's a plum, a cherry, or something else. Prunus is a broad category. The main thing is that it doesn't produce any fruit. It's just for show.

We're getting loads of pretty blossoms this year.

We did have a couple of fruiting plum trees in the yard when we moved in. The fruit was good, but it wasn't all that abundant. Both trees were knocked over by wind during the storm Xynthia in 2010. It's hard to believe that it's been eleven years already.


  1. And that is definitely ornamental. I love it.

  2. Gorgeous! Are they fragrant?

  3. I'v got three of those on my parking strip. .
    It's a flowering cherry tree. Gorgeous! I'm in Portland, Oregon.

  4. Perhaps not fruit for humans, but I imagine the bees like those trees beaucoup.

  5. mitch, :)

    bettyann, I'm not a good one to ask... my sense of smell ain't what it used to be.

    whimsy2, I wondered. Thanks!

    emm, I think they do.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
