My absolute favorite flowering tree is the weeping cherry. They look like giant pink umbrellas. A few years ago I planted one on my front lawn (along with a Kwanzan Cherry) and it is doing great. It's the first thing I see when I walk out my front door. It just makes me smile and it helps to block the view of the very unattractive house across the street. I wish it would bloom all year! Over the weekend I was lucky enough to picnic with some good friends under a huge weeping cherry at the planting fields in Oyster Bay. Here are some pictures of my tree and the one at planting fields.
