One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

We don't exactly know who this cherry is....
but it sure is pretty. It sits all alone on a corner across the road from the "Little Girl" magnolias. At some point in the distant past,it fell through the cracks, label wise, and no one since has had the heart to cut it down. We could probably find out it's identity, but it wouldn't look any nicer. It actually looks like an early Yoshino, but it's not.
Somebody, I imagine a squirrel, sat in this main crotch and cracked the pits. It must have been a pleasant place for a meal.
