(That) Early Cherry again

I lost the count how many times I posted the photo of this Cherry tree.

Because of this tree having the flower (almost) always, I talked

about many times, often with amazement.

She kept the full bloom from October to the next may before. But  

it was a bit low-key in last year —– still showing 10 or so flowers

always since last October and she would be in full bloom soon.

So that I even dubbed her “Perpetual Cherry”.  Despite watching her in past

3, 4 years, still I’m not wise to tell why this tree has the flower out of season.  

—– Genetic ? = Type of variety such as crossed with Winter Cherry ?  or

just because the freak weather had triggered her to miss-judge the timing ?

What ever the cause, the weather these days are enough for her to bloom.

(My worry is that her branch seems to be very thin —– was that because of

the energy has been directed to the flowers and not much went to the body ?  

= we may need to give a lots of fertilizer to her ! )

    It is worrisome, the cause for these perpetual blossomings that take the life force out of the trees and the strange, strange weather we’re all experiencing. She’s beautiful, this Perpetual Cherry, and I enjoy seeing her in bloom, but it would be nice to know that she could have her appropriate seasonal rest.

      So far last year, this tree has no flower from June to September. (While having lots of leaves.)
      So, that was her resting time.
