I Want to Share the Perfume of Our Cherry Tree

My favorite tree on our property is probably the Canada Red Cherry tree we planted shortly after we moved here. It has grown a lot over the years and is visible from several windows in the house. Right now, it is in full bloom and buzzing with the activity of visiting birds and bees.

I wish I could share the intoxicating fragrance from these blossoms with you, but instead, I am publishing this photo for you to see. Isn't it beautiful?

You may have actually seen a photo or two of this tree before. I've published pictures of it several times here on this blog.  For example, it appeared in these two posts:



Spring is here in Montana, and the landscape is becoming really green. I'm actually thinking it might be safe to take the snow tires off the cars next week! (You can read about why I always wait until May to switch our tires out in a post I wrote about winter driving and my car sliding off the driveway by clicking here

I hope you are having a wonderful day - and I am sorry I can't share the delightful scent that is wafting through my open windows with you today.

What is your favorite thing about Spring?

    1. I did Lori - they smelled so good, I kept them for a while even after they began to drop their petals!

  3. Beautiful tree, so many blossoms! I remember the fragrance from whan I had a cherry tree. In its first season it gave me a full kilo of cherries, second year, not so many :(

    1. I wonder why your tree produced less fruit the second year? The Canada Red Cherry tree is not a typical cherry tree. It does not produce any edible fruit, except little berries for the birds.

  4. I have always been obsessed with trees, and I must say your Cherry tree is beautiful, Susan! I have never seen one before so I thanks for sharing this picture. My favorite thing about Spring? Definitely not the bad TN allergens and tornadoes. I would have to go for the colorful flowers I see around our neighborhood. :-)

    1. I agree. Having lived in the midwest for a while, I must say I don't miss worrying about tornados.

  6. What a gorgeous tree Susan! I bet it smells amazing right now. We get spring a lot earlier than you all do. We already have our garden planted and everything.

    1. No thoughts of planting here quite yet, Rena. We had a little snow this week.
