Cherry leaves

DAY 216 (7 NOVEMBER) – Japanese cherry (Prunus serrulata) (Farnham)

Some trees look more gorgeous than others at the moment. This Japanese cherry in someone’s front garden is one from the gorgeous category. They are native to China, Korea and India as well as Japan – where they’re grown primarily for their spring blossom. Unlike the wild cherry, the fruit is bitter and cannot be eaten raw.

I hope the blossom comes during this financial year, so that I can include it in my blog. It may be later…
