Grafted pink and white cherry blossoms

Grafted pink and white hybrid cherry tree

Today’s photo comes from my next-door neighbor’s tree, a most unusual tree. The pink comes from the ornamental Kanzan cherry tree. The tree has been grafted onto the rootstock of another, hardier variety–a native wild cherry with white blossoms. These flowers are not from two different trees that are growing side by side. There is only one stump so looking at the tree when the blossoms are in full bloom in April is a bit shocking.

Ashland’s East Main Street during COVID-19

Continuing the Ashland during Covid-19 series, today’s photo features a part of downtown where one frequently needs to do a few laps around the block to find a place to park. Not during the spring of 2020 where you can park wherever you want, whenever you want.

Ashland Pond

Ashland Pond

Or is it Ashland Ponds? This place is Ashland Ponds on Google Maps, but there is only one pond here.

I had never heard of, or happened on, this place after nearly 20 years in Ashland. And I get around, but somehow Ashland Pond never made it onto my radar. We were heading out to do a ride/run on the Bear Creek Greenway, like we have a million times before, when I saw this on Google Maps with what appeared to be a trail around it so we investigated. Lovely spot with no people and lots of wildlife. We saw numerous birds, ducks, and turtles. Upon further research it appears that you may encounter a family of river otters in this place as well.

You can’t get here from the Bear Creek Greenway (as far as I can tell). Instead, head to the end of Glendower Street, through the gap in the barrier, and go down and to the left.

Cherry blossoms in Ashland

桜

On a bike ride last week I encountered some of the loveliest cherry blossoms I’ve ever seen. I didn’t have my camera with me so the next day I went on another ride with my camera. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember where I saw them the day before. I never did find them, but I did get a shot of these.
