A few years back, a sapling took root out front by the Japanese maples and rhodie patch. I let it live, figuring it was okay there and might contribute more shade for the rhodies. But I never had figured out what kind of tree it was.
Until yesterday. It bloomed for the first time, so I sauntered over for a closer look. What I found was a shocker. After three failed attempts to get cherry trees going on that side of the house, I now had TWO, going gangbusters! Turns out the other tree I discovered last year when I took out the rhodie killed by the freeze a few years back is also a cherry tree!
The tree growing out of the rhodie patch has a lot of fruit on it this year
