It is @Keely 😞. The good news is that the cuttings are still alive, but too soon to be rooted yet, but you'll see them on here if they do & I'll be a very happy boy! 😁

@brighton It's growing in a narrow ornamental wall, which would be destroyed & with less than 50% survival rate, bro said it was not an option. Sad indeed. One house I lived at had a big cherry blossom tree in the front garden, but the Philistines who bought the house cut it down 😖

I would be so gutted to leave that beauty behind but maybe it will inspire the next owner ☺

@greenfinger14 @brighton & @vec Just hope those who will live in my brother's old house are not like the "cherry blossom choppers" who bought one of my old houses! And....everything is crossed for the cuttings I took! 😊
