Cherry Tree Blossom
Spring Blossom near the Cottage
The purple flower in the front is the biennial Honesty. Later in the season I'll get sick of this colour and rip it all out!
Flowering Cherry - Spring 2003
The spring blossom contrasts so beautifully with the strappy leaves of the Cabbage tree (Cordyline). And it flowers at the same time as the deep pink rhododendron. Part of my grand design? Nope - just a happy accident of timing!

The picture below is from the Moosey Archives and shows the cherry trees in their fourth year after the big move.

The pink and white blossom is beautiful on the tree as it hangs gently down. Please, wind, don't blow it all off too soon.
