Flower snow

This is my favourite tree in our garden. I think it's an ornamental cherry. It's just outside our bedroom window, and has lovely big leaves in summer that turn wonderful shades of red and yellow and orange in Autumn. It also has lovely bark so even in winter it's kind of pretty!

Yes, that's an open car door. Finding things to do while sleeping beauty does her thing...
At this time of year, it has glorious, fragrant blossoms everywhere...
which before too long will become a lovely petal carpet on the grass below.

I love a tree that shows you a different part of itself with every changing season.
