Double Blossom

A street nearby has ornamental prunus as the street trees.  They are looking very pretty at the moment, with masses of pink flowers and the beginnings of their burgundy-coloured leaves.  As I was photographing the blossom, I noticed this strange double flower  - it has 10 petals instead of five, and also appears to have two stigmas.
