What's that? You want more pin cherries?

I can’t help it – I just adore the pin cherries! They brought some of the first glimpses of autumn color this season, and they continue to brighten my days.

Here I was this morning, trying to comb through the overload of pictures I have to share with you, and what did I do? I took my camera out for my morning walk, and came back with another 150 images to work with! Sheesh.

I couldn’t decide what to share from the morning, so I figured I’d just give you some pin cherries (Prunus pensylvanica) for a Friday smile. All the lovely rain from last night gave us a beautiful misty morning - perfect for a walk in the woods.

Remember my thoughts on the “Pennsylvania Red” from when I first moved here? Autumn only reaffirms the natural expression of red in this land.

More to follow!


  1. Merci, pour vos visites à mon blog. D’après vos belles photos, je vois que l’automne est magnifique dans votre région, chez nous il a un peu de retard, nous avons eu beaucoup de soleil et de températures supérieures à 20C°.

  2. Hi JLB,

    Beautiful, as always. Had to chuckle at the extra pictures, though.... there you were thinking of pictures, and look what you attracted...more pictures! :-)

  3. WoW!

    Beautiful as usual.

    I do not think I have ever seen a pin cherry tree, now that you have mentioned it.

    Lucky lady to have all those exotic trees within your reach.

  4. Salut Manu!, je suis heureux de vous voir encore. J'espère que l'automne arrive bientôt en Arbois!

    Michelle, isn't that always the way? When it rains it pours, (and I do love rain...) :)

    Barbara, many thanks! The pin cherries are new to me as well, like so many other trees on the East Coast. I admit, I can't pick a favorite, but if I had to make a list of "tops," pin cherries would certainly be up there!
