I met this beautiful little tree this afternoon, the both of us positively basking in the warm sunshine and (the tree) having suffered not a jot with the chilly winds and hail we have had earlier this week. I don’t know the cultivar but is an early-flowering variety, or has been chivvied along by the mild weather and the open, southerly aspect it enjoys. Happy tree.

I found this link to help you distinguish betweeen crab apples and cherry trees – it is not always so easy –



p.s. Don’t forget to put the clocks forward an hour tonight (Spring forward/Fall back) – lighter evenings, later…
