Library in full bloom

Liz White of Pleasanton is one of many people stopping these days to photograph the spectacular blossoming trees in front of the Pleasanton Public Library.

White, an art student, said she frequently photographs beautiful things around town that she might use in her work.

The trees are a species of flowering cherry, Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis, which has the unusual characteristic of blooming twice each year -- once in the spring, and again in autumn, although the autumn bloom is "less inspired," said City Landscape Architect Mike Fulford.
