Pretty in Pink

Reading time 1 minute

In spite of the biting wind, these fragile pink blossoms of Prunus and Camellia put on a brave show this weekend at Goodnestone Park, Kent. Surely spring can only be days away now?

  1. […] On the fringes of the grass garden, a grove of ornamental flowering plum trees sparkled, their bright pink flowers dazzling against the leafless grey of the woods behind . I hope one day to go to Japan to see the legendary cherry blossom, but these trees show that the same magic can be achieved closer to home.  See more in this gallery. […]

  2. I have been searching and searching for a good photo of a Japanese Plum to compare to the photo of a tree I took the other day but couldn’t identify. I think it could be a Japanese Plum but I’m just not sure. It’s blooming right now (winter weather), with no leaves on the tree in South Louisiana. This little tree is just so beautiful. I must find out what it is so I can buy some for my yard. Your photos are lovely btw!
