I am grateful for these leaves.
This branch is part of our dying May Day tree. It's not the English May Day tree, but prunus pradus, a kind of chokecherry.
It is called the May Day tree because it tends to bloom around May day (Queen Victoria's birthday, May 24th).
It also tends to become diseased when it get old, as ours is.
That's our bedroom window on the second floor. I love this tree. I'm grateful to wake up to it every morning.
