Pink Sea. Pink Snow
The rites of spring are greener grass and trees with leafs and flowering blossoms. Several years after my wife and I purchased our house, we planted two Quanson Cherry Trees between the sidewalk and curb in front of our First Avenue home.
The trees have grown and put out a tremendous number of flowers. They are now at their peak. When you look down our block from Broadway you see a sea of pink. In several weeks, the flowers will fall and create several inches of pink snow.
If you have the spirit for a flowering tree, it will create a colorful spring and get prettier each year.
