Prunus - late

(Above and below) Prunus 'Kanzan' - in its early moment of glory, with flame-red leaves making an agreeable clash with sugar-pink flowers.

(Above and below) Prunus 'Kanzan' about a week later, now a gentler composition of green leaves and paler pink blossom, from which drifts a continuous soft rain of petals.


(Above and below) Prunus 'Shirofugen', photos taken late in the evening. Anyway it would take a better photographer than me to do justice to this lovely tree, which is about the last of the Sato Zakura cherries. The flowers change from pink to white and back to pink again.
