Prunus - Snow Showers

Prunus - Snow Showers (Prunus)

Planted this early Feb, when it was just budding up. The last few sunny days has really brought the blossoms out, and it is living up to it's name.....:o)

I moved my peach coloured Laburnum from here, and am so relieved to see the new buds on it swelling, I didn't want to lose it, but for most of the year it isn.t such an attractive tree.

Thanks for the lovely comments girls.....:o)

San and Michaella, this was from a local garden centre....£14.99 which was quite reasonable I thought.
Thanks Sheila and Annella, it's such a treat to see some colour at last....:o)

Such a pretty garden Janey. I didn't realize how much earlier your spring arrives. We finally had some sunshine today after 3 solid days of snow. I want it to go!!!! We are having unseasonably cold weather for at least 4 more days.
What is your garden wall made of? It is so cozy looking.

janey that was cheap, had one in our village nursery and was £25 :o( will keep looking

It is lovely isn't it Amy....I'm really pleased with it, and it has good Autumn colour too...don't want to think about that just now though.....:o((

Thank you RbtP....we've had about a week of really warm Spring weather, but now the cold's coming over again....poor old plants won't know what to do! Hope you soon get some sun, now it's officially spring. The wall there on the left hand side of the garden is really old brick, it's very old, I think the climbers are keeping it up...Lol

Mmm....that was pricey San, prices differ such a lot don't they, I know the 2 GCs I frequent can be really expensive on some items, and cheaper on others, the Kojo no Mai cherry I bought a few weeks ago was £8.99, which was very reasonable. Had a look in Morrisons at the weekend and they were selling cherry and crab apple trees for £5, now that is a bargain!

wow thats cheap, i do like morrisons for plants even though only small but good quality janey, i love them Kojo no mai cherrys to , i need a bigger garden thats all there is to it lol
