Massive Kenwood Yoshino cherry tree

My home in Kenwood in the fifties.

This house is where I grew up with my sister Sally until we completed school and went off to college. My parents build this house during the war so instead of a wood frame construction, steel was used due to war shortage, and both the first and second floors were concrete with hot water heat. We had some great times there and I so remember climbing this tree but it was not quite this big then. As I remember the police were out in force in the spring as cutting a cherry tree was a crime and a large fine was imposed on those caught.
I know my mother sold the house after my father passed away in the late sixties and moved to my fathers family farm near Middletown Marylnad where I now live with my wife Sandy. My sister, Sally built a house on the farm as well but them moved to New Market Maryland some years ago.
