Sometimes the world loves a show off! Spring is that time. Perhaps the plant devas work over time in February and March to get ready for the extravaganza. Bling is all over my cherry tree.
Even if there are no cherries, the tree is worth having for the display. It's a grafted tree with four or five different cherries. Last year I ate two, not quite ripe, in a race with Nature and the jays and squirrels. This year there'll be protection over the small tree. For now, I'm reveling in their gaudy glitz.
