Oh, That Cherry Tree!

CI didn’t know the tree in front of my house was a cherry tree—until it bloomed. Oh, my goodness did it ever bloom! The luscious pink looks amazing against the newly painted house. I’ve never had a cherry tree before, and I’m just crazy happy with the clusters of blooms that make me smile every time I walk through the front entry.

Oh—and don’t miss the new boxwood plantings that finish the moss garden bed under the tree. I wish my cherry tree could bloom all Summer long. Plant one and smile!

My tree in full bloom ... looks stunning against the house

      Nancy, Thank you checking out my Cherry tree. I love my new house color—it is Burnt Hickory stain by Cabot. The trim is Benjamin Moore’s Bone White.

    Lissy, I might have to borrow the close up shot … every Carolina Gurl’s fav color combo!! I’m so excited to make my maiden voyage to Cashiers and Highlands, in June. Can’t wait to develop my own “house crushes” … I may even find some of yours!
