It Had Pink Pompom Blossoms Every Spring In three-and-a-half years, Josephine had never jumped up into this Kanzan Cherry tree before. I happened to be standing next to it a few weeks ago when she finally did, and I got three nice photos. The tree was cut down the next day so a sidewalk could be repaired. It’s felling was a shocking surprise to all of us who live here and admired its silky bark and profusion of cherry blossoms each spring. We delighted in the “pink rain” when the flowers finally floated free. It was a wonderful tree. I used to sit in it, myself.
