Under the Cherry Moon

This is my first spring of city living and I'm happy to see spring bursts out almost overnight in the city too. Old prunus species trees form a canopy over the entry to the walkway of my (also) old complex.

The prunus species includes cherry and plum trees. These particular trees have purplish leaves so they are probably the Cherry Plum variety. That's about all I know (and some stuff that I don't know) so you horticulturists feel free to correct me all day long and into next week in the comments.
