Red River Valley and Weeping Cherry Blossoms

I was watching Prairie Home Companion last night (for the umpteenth time) and for some reason started tearing up when they started singing Red River Valley. It’s one of my favorite songs that Marty Robbins sang…I wore out his Gunfighter Ballad records when I was a kid. Thought I’d share a video I found on youtube.

My Weeping Cherry made it through all the temperature changes of Nevada’s Springtime. The blossoms are starting to open!

  1. Sharon…the blossoms aren’t all that big…it’s just that there are about 15-20 all bunched up together.

    When fully opened I think they’ll be a bit bigger than 3/4″.

    Oh…poor wee chickies. They’re soo cute! Wish I lived nearby for the fresh eggs!

    I don’t think the weeping cherries are fast growers…but when full-size, boy-howdy!
