紫葉矮櫻,又叫紫葉沙櫻桃,是屬於小至中型灌木,非常容易栽種,不太需要照顧,很適合當做圍籬。通常只五、六呎高,四,五月時開淡粉紅小花,秋天時則會生深紫色像櫻桃一樣果子,葉片為深紫紅色,光照不足時會轉綠,為長壽型的灌木。

日本垂枝櫻花 Japanese Weeping Cherry (Prunus)

若干天前看到開了1/3今天開車特地去拍幾乎全部綻放,美麗絕倫,卻有嬌羞雋永的味道,小巧的花朵佔滿枝條迎著初春微風和金燦燦的霞光,頗慶幸拍攝到她的美,可惜花期短暫,這使得影像記憶相當珍貴了

A few days ago, I noticed this Japanese weeping cherry tree was about 1/3 blooming.  Today we drove there just for picture taking, it was almost fully blooming!  Stunning scene, so beautiful! The cute little pink, shy blossoms are all over the branches, gently moving in the spring breeze and bathing in the golden sunset.    Luckily, I captured the beautiful moment for a nice memory and images to share. (Especially since it has a short blooming time.)
