Flowering and fescuing in Lee

Spring has brought forth the annual flowering of this weeping tree in downtown's Lee Park, which also recently received a coating of grass seed, straw, and water– an effort to re-cover the patches of grass lost during approximately six weeks of tents during last fall's "Occupy Charlottesville" protest encampment.

3/27 Correction: An early online version of this posting called the tree a willow. On further inspection, it appears to be a cherry, though we're not sufficiently trained as arborists to specify.
