Memorial Cherry Blossom

In 2014 I planted a memorial tree for Little Mac, our dearly departed black and white cat. Cat's Memorial Row in the orchard was a bit full, so her tree was planted in the Island Bed. It's a Prunus subhirtella, an autumn-winter flowering cherry.

 Just flowering, in late autumn.

My goodness I miss my little black and white cat with the goggle eyes. She's the first cat I've ever 'lost'. Even now (over a year later) when I'm out walking I find myself looking underneath the hedges, trying to find her. Hmm...

Her tree is planted so it can be seen from the house, and I've placed her special food bowl at its base. That's all I can do, really. So sad.
