Cherry Blossoms Still Blooming

The peak for cherry blossoms is now past. The rainstorms of the past week have knocked down most of the petals. Now that the delicate white flowers of the Yoshino Cherries are mostly gone, the trees are starting to leaf out.

But at least some varieties are still in bloom. This tree appears to be the Kwanzan variety, though the label nailed to its trunk only identifies it as a cherry. (Trees nearby with similar blooms were labelled as Kwanzan.)
