Cherry blossoms in the backyard

Lizzie and I were giving our backyard some much-needed attention today and she discovered that one branch of our ornamental cherry tree had blossomed. This tree is the most annoying tree I've ever seen, as most of the season it dropped inedible cherries down on the ground which are crushed and smushed and create a horrible mess everywhere  Imagine walking over a field of EYEBALLS everyday from July through September. That's what it is like. But for now...

...we can enjoy...

...pretty flowers

You need to add an apple tree to your yard. (Just so you can sing, "It's cherry pink & apple blossom white!")
