This young (2 year old) tree is in bright flowering bloom in the kitchen garden at the arboretum. Small leaves are beginning to appear on the stems and branches and soon, the flowers will be gone ....

What a beautiful tree and what a beautiful job you did with it! Thank goodness things have not bloomed to that extent here as the rain and cold weather have come back for one of our many "spring winters -- blackberry, dogwood, etc. etc.).

This is one of my FAVORITE trees. Some of them here this year have bloomed so dark that they are nearly purple -- I don't know if it is the species or some quirk of the weather. Anyway -- great piece!

While out errand running today I noticed the leaves on the recently blooming trees to be popping out here too - it MUST be the exceptionally warm days recently. Beautiful little tree, Lin, very "springy!"
