Today's thing of beauty: Prunus 'Okame'. I know it is spring when I see my Okame flowering Cherry trees blooming. They are the first of the Cherries to bloom starting in February.
I thought I had better take her portrait today before the petals fell to the ground. They don't stay on the tree very long. Okame is the type of Cherry tree that you see in Washington, D.C. for the famous Cherry blossom time.
