Cistena Plum Bush

When we had the front lawn landscaped, we had a couple of cistena plum bushes put in.  Then we bought a couple more later on and planted those ourselves.  For some reason, those two died after a couple of years of pretty blossoms.  I wonder what happened.  They were planted in the same area as the thriving ones.  Going forward, we’ll probably replace them with something else.  I do really love it when they flower though.

Just a few beautiful things from the yard this morning.
