|My "removed" tree is now about 8 baby trees|
It amazes us how many of these we found and still find to this day all over our yard.
We assumed they came from birds dropping seeds from one of our neighbors' weeping cherry trees, but they did not have the same bark, nor leaves similar to our flowering cherry trees. Then we decided they must be some native tree that just grows everywhere stealthily, without attracting much attention to itself.
The ones that we did not cut down were getting large.
|This tree is taller than the shed it stands next to.|
|The lighter trees behind the pine tree are the same trees|
But this week one of the trees bloomed!
It is very sparse and looks nothing like my grafted weeping cherry.

However sparse it may be, I am enthralled! I am hoping that all the remaining trees bloom within a few years. How lovely when an ugly duckling tree turns out to be a graceful swan.
