GRAFTING: Almond onto Cherry

Hello! :)

Does anyone know if my chances are good trying to graft Almond (Prunus x persicoides) branches to Cherry (Prunus avium) root stock?

I have a pot-grown Cherry tree with an excellent nebari, but the leaves give me no inspiration. However, there are some wonderful Almond trees in town with beautiful early blossoms ....... :arrow:

I'm thinking if anything, almonds are closer to apricots....

Well, this particular Almond which is a Prunus x persicoides is actually a cross between a Peach (Prunis persica) and Almond (Prunus dulcis) so .... apricot .... peach .... almond ..... :arrow:

Am I expecting too much by introducing a Cherry rootstock? To be perfectly honest I'm only going by the fact that all of them are Prunus. Not good enough?
