Cherry plum - Spring blossom series

 The third installment of the spring blossom series is of the Cherry plum (Prunus cerasifera).   In a previous post on this tree species I confused this tree species with the Malus x purpurea in one of the images.  Hopefully I´ve got it right this time.  This tree is a favorite as an ornamental tree both for its colorful flowers and for its purple leaves.
