Yesterday the Yoshino cherry was in peak bloom at the botanical garden. Unlike the crypto-British Okame cherry in flower last week, Prunus x yedoensis really is a Japanese hybrid.
The early Ranunculaceae are also putting on a good show.
There are more pictures here.
As usual, click on the pictures to see them larger and with better color. (WordPress mutes colors when it resizes images.) Right-click and open in a new window to see them at maximum size.
