Planted a cherry tree last week and yesterday the first flowers started to blossom.
Will be interesting to see if the fruit will be edible so far north 🙂

Planting stuff that you can eat is so rewarding!

    Great texture in the cherry blossom, most of the blossom has gone from here now, either blown off or battered by the rain.

    Cheers Mark

    I like planting things you can eat too, I’m surprised you had blooms so soon after planting. I’ve got some flower pictues here you might like:
