cherry blossom in Bath







Prunus 'Ukon'. James Street West, Bath (8th April 2017)




'Ukon' is unmistakable for a day or two when the newly-open blossom is a unique creamy-green colour. Thereafter it is not quite so obvious but remains a subtly classy tree, distinguishable by the only-semi-double flowers* and the rather noticeable red eye on the blossom as it ages (though be warned, many other cherry blossoms have red eyes too).


* Therefore distinct from other white blossoms such as Tae-Haku (single) or Shirotae etc (fully double) ...












Prunus 'Pink Perfection', Canterbury Street, Bath (8th April, 2017)

This is the same tree I photographed in bud last week.

Prunus 'Amanogawa' near Pulteney Road South, Bath (9th April, 2017)







...Actually, outside a new-build development on the other side of the railway line, on the path up to the canal. I would have given the street name but Google Maps doesn't know about it yet.







Prunus 'Kanzan' in Victoria Park, Bath (9th April, 2017)


This is the same tree that I photographed in bud last week.
