Japanese Weeping Cherry Tree

Pretty in pink is definitely this tree, the Japanese Weeping Cherry Tree.  And what I beautiful tree it was!  I have loved this tree for the 23 years it adorned my front yard.  This image was taken three years ago.  It has not bloomed much over the last few years and I worried that it wasn't getting the sun and water it need because it grew near a Water Oak tree planted at the same time, 3 years before I moved in.  The larger tree was trimmed back but it didn't help.  This summer the leaves turned brown and I knew it had lost its life force. I mourn the loss of this life.  I shall miss its seasonal beauty and unique shape.  I have many memories of the bright spring light shinning through its lovely colors. And I have these images and many more with my daughters in their prom dresses.  I shall focus on the good.  Although the sadness of its passing is still in my heart.
