What an amazingly deep blue sky behind the cherry.
This was yesterday afternoon and we have another day of sunshine forecast, its hard to feel festive but lovely none the less.
It was cloudy for the whole week I was in the UK, so I’m glad too to have some sunshine now I’m home.
Ours is not due to last, heavy rain forecast tomorrow unfortunately, I hope you had a good trip though.
How pretty. I love the branch structure.
I wish it were mine, this is a neighbours lovely tree!
Well, if you can see it, it is part of your garden. Designers ‘borrow’ things from the landscape all the time don’t they?
Wonders of nature ☺
Thats just how I feel, nature is wonderful 🙂
Ahh, it makes me think of Spring!
We’ve so far escaped a lot of the rain seen elsewhere and the early winter blossoms are really beautiful this year. Hopefully Spring and good weather will not be too far away for us all.
I love cherry blossoms. Sometimes, I think spring goes by so quickly, I don’t have the time to fully savour them. Have you ever tried sakura/cherry blossom flavoured cream in a dessert treat? Divine. Enjoy the best of spring, Julie. Happy gardening. xo
I haven’t, but it sounds intriguing, we are in early winter here, spring is a little way off but currently our mild weather means we are able to enjoy a lovely extended gardening season. I have looked but not sure which season you are in, I hope its the best it can be for you.
My apologies. I thought you were in Aus/New Z. When spring rolls around I’ll find some of that sakura cream and share a photo with you.
This is lovely Julie! Enjoy that blue sky while you can.
I have made the most of today’s sunshine Susie, dinner ended up a very shoddy affair!
Even in winter … there is still life. Beautiful.
So far we’ve escaped the forecast harsh winter of an El Nino year and are enjoying winter blossoms with optimism!
Does this really bloom every winter at this time, Julie? Or is it because of the mild weather this year?
Its nature is to flower in winter but if it were really very cold the blossoms would not last long on the trees and in heavy rain get sodden and drab. The mild weather is fortunately helping them to look their winter best.
I hear you. Thanks for explaining. Being Canadian, I just can’t easily imagine anything flowering in winter.
We are fortunate to have several genus of plants that flower in winter here Cynthia, I guess its much colder where you are than here but I expect its much more scenic where you are too!
Beautiful! I can see the blue sky behind the flowers and I was wondering if you get any bees or bumbles on the flowers on warm days? Amelia
Over the last couple of days I have seen a Queen and fairly certain I heard another one but not quick enough to get a close look, no other bees spotted though.This mild spell must be confusing for them.
There are a number of these blooming now throughout the Charlotte area. I didn’t know what they were until just recently. Thanks for the photo.
I love their delicate optimism John, there is another white cultivar of Prunus x subhirtella that I like very much too.
I was totally unaware there is a winter flowering cherry tree, it is gorgeous, and it is such a welcome sight on this cold dreary winter day.
Glad this tree brought you some pleasure Charlie, it certainly lifts my spirits here.
A cheerful picture to help us through the duller winter days, Julie.
That was only yesterday, another lovely day today but I am sure the blossom will look quite sodden with the forecast two days of rain. I hope you had some sunshine too.
Gorgeous and so abundant. I have seen just few of forsythia flowers today.
Forsythia, thats early but it does not seem like December at all, I just hope there isn’t something very cold in store for the New Year.
Very pretty! I see one in someone’s front garden every day on my way to Norwich. So lovely to see blossom at this time of year.
I really like this delicate tree all year round but in a mild winter when the blossoms stay for longer, its really uplifting to see. Hope the weather is dry at least for you Clare.
Thank-you Julie. The weather has been fairly good this week and we’ve got quite a lot done.
So strange, though beautiful. This cherry doesn’t bear fruit, does it? I wonder if it will bloom again in spring.
No fruit that I have ever seen, but as it flowers in winter I guess that would not be viable. The flowers are better in a mild winter and quickly disappear in a heavy frost or cold snap. So we just enjoy whilst we can. 🙂
We also have a Prunus ‘Autumnalis Rosea’ but sadly ours is now on its way out being many years old so it is nice to see a healthy one! This mild winter is really producing some spectacular flowering displays. Our Hellebores are practically in full flower.
I have just tried to link back into your blog and the link is now missing but see you have another new blog – ‘Digging for Dirt’ on your website, not a garden I have visited before, hopefully we will in 2016. Thanks for visiting my blog. 🙂
