Prunus × incam ‘Okamé’ is just a babe, no more than 30cm tall, but that hasn’t stopped it flowering prolifically. It was enjoying the spring sunshine today as much as I was, and that was a great deal. After last night’s riotous, window-shaking, sleep-depriving storm it was all the more appreciated. It seems that calm can follow as well as lead. This flowering cherry will reach 4m-8m in height given ideal conditions. The thought of a tree that size, fully clad in these pretty pink blooms is almost too much to cope with. But I will be brave. I will manage.
