This little tree survived having a large ash tree branch landing on it and bending it double! :-)))

Wow Spritz How beautiful is that......What a gorgeous pink

22 Mar, 2010

 

Your little tree is gorgeous Spritz...I love this colour.

It is lovely, thanks Milky and Motinot. :-))

Joanella, when we got the ash branch off it, only two little pieces had to be pruned off! I was amazed...I think it was because it was only a year old then, so the 'trunk' was still flexible.

gosh that was lucky bet you were scared to look..

I was VERY upset at seeing it - I thought the prunus was finished for good. I was very relieved to see it relatively undamaged! :-)))

How lucky your little tree wasn't damaged , I think I would have been in tears , it's so beautiful ....

22 Mar, 2010

 

Who says I wasn't, Amy? lol.

22 Mar, 2010

 

Very handsome and scented too I believe. :-)

Grogeous prunus bloom color. Very rich. So glad it survived being clobbered on the head! Probably be a good year, feeling like it could get through anything. lol!

23 Mar, 2010

 

It is very pretty....and scented too?.....

23 Mar, 2010

 

Oh dear - I'll try to remember to stick my nose in it on the way out with H. this morning!

23 Mar, 2010

 

What a lovely little tree - another one to tempt me!

23 Mar, 2010

 

Wish-list at the ready? lol.

23 Mar, 2010

 

Too heavy to cart around now, Spritz! LOL

23 Mar, 2010

 

LOL....

I did sniff it this morning - couldn't sense any scent, though. It was a bit damp and blowy out there, though.

23 Mar, 2010

 

Lovely little tree with such pretty blossom!

23 Mar, 2010

 

It is one to enjoy, Pp. Different, with its deep pink colour. :-))

lovely barbara :o)

23 Mar, 2010

 

Beautiful tree.

23 Mar, 2010

 

Thanks, Sandra. It flowers early, which is another bonus.:-)

Thanks, Pam - it's still only a baby, but it doesn't get huge anyway!

23 Mar, 2010

 

definitely spring has sprung. :o))

23 Mar, 2010

 

Yes!! :-)))

23 Mar, 2010

 

Beautiful tree........

23 Mar, 2010

 

Glad everyone approves - I have to admit that it was an impulse buy at a Nursery where I went for something else - then I had to persuade OH that it 'could' be fitted in! :-)))

24 Mar, 2010

 

As you do.........!!

24 Mar, 2010

 

We had to remove a circle of grass and dig, but it did fit in well. It wasn't one of my 'shoehorn' efforts! Now that makes a change. :-))

24 Mar, 2010

 

I love this one, mine's in bloom now too, always look forward to it :)

26 Mar, 2010

 

How nice to hear that you've got one as well, Grindle! It's a lovely colour, isn't it. How long has yours been in?

26 Mar, 2010

 

I love it for it's early blossom, and it really stands out in the garden at this time of year, the one I have is about 5 years old, I brought it with me from my other garden as it was small enough to move, it's standing about 5ft tall now.

27 Mar, 2010

 

A bit bigger than mine, then. Well, a little bit! :-))

27 Mar, 2010

 

how tall will it get?

22 Feb, 2011

 

Not much bigger, Sticki - maybe 6 -7'.

22 Feb, 2011

22 Feb, 2011

 

Thanks, Sticki. I expect it has been painted - look at its name! :-)
