    I have started this thread at the suggestion of @wcutler. I hope to add photos of these beautiful trees next Spring, but will start with two now that I have already posted. Mount Fuji and Amanogawa.
    If anybody in England is on this forum with Cherry tree Spring photos then please add.

    I suggest including close up view so details of flowers can be seen

    Will do Ron, thanks for the advice. My wife and I are recently retired so have the time next Spring to search and photograph the Cherries here in England. Hope we can do the thread proud.

    This photo is of new fruit forming on a Prunus Avium (Mazzard Cherry) growing wild very close to me this morning. The Blackbirds are going to love these.

    Found this Prunus subhirtella Winter flowering cherry this morning whilst out walking. Such a pretty sight on a very cloudy dank day in England. It's not all about Spring blossom!!!

    Good morning, yes I agree, but more importantly it started flowering in November when everything else around it is dropping leaves. Very cheerful!!!

    So exciting, our local council is planting new Cherries all around where I live as I type this. Can't wait to see and post photos in the Spring.
