I've got two hideous conifers in my front bit of lawn that fronts onto the pavement. It is on my list of Things To Do In The Garden this year to dig the buggers up and plant a nice flowering cherry instead.
I have a white one at the back and pink one out front, both ready to burst open. Considering the winter we've had, it's amazingly early for up here but it's our first spring in this house, so might not be so unusual.
It's lovely I'm in Japan at the moment , walking down the street the cherry blossoms are falling like rain as there are so many close together it's like (pink) snow it's just magical. The locals are all out taking photos.
