Ornamental Cherry Blossoms in Winter

Melbourne has been blessed with some beautiful, sunny days this winter, which has made going for a suburban stroll a delight.

 

Much was my surprise the other day n a wander to discover an old Ornamental Cherry Blossom in bloom! This would not be odd if it were spring: however it is winter!

 

Prunus serrulata or Japanese cherry, also called hill cherry, oriental cherry, East Asian cherry, is a species of cherry native to China, Japan and Korea, and is used for its spring cherry blossom displays and festivals.
