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.

Onward and upward

We had snow in the mountains a couple days ago in September. But today’s photo is actually from April seven and a half years ago. The tree had autumn leaves, winter snow, and spring buds going simultaneously.

Today’s photo comes from a different season. Spring and autumn are my favorite times of year in Ashland. Spring frequently gets mixed up with winter, especially in March and April, leading to photos like this one with lush greens and snow.

Yesterday’s sunrise was amazing, but I didn’t capture it. Today’s photo is from two and a half years ago.

One year ago today…
