A personal favourite among the Tabs. Tall, straight, wonderfully proportioned crown, and - with due apologies for ascribing a human attribute - how elegant! An achingly beautiful sight to watch when the pale pink blooms float down in a breeze, and, following a brief, bare-branch spell, the new foliage starts to emerge. Best viewed as a row of trees - as I do from across the road.
