    Sure. I'm looking forward to seeing your additional photos, hope the branches aren't too high off the ground.

    I have a few photos of the flowers of the Prunus avium.

    Took those two with my phone camera and here are a few more with a Pentax camera. I tried to compare the leaves but the Prunus avium leaves are still very small. The light was not good for photographs today. Maybe a bit of sun would help.

    Thanks, Noemiedemay. You can easily see the circles instead of stars on the back of the flowers. I can contrast the leaves well enough between the flowers on the tray, taken with your phone camera, where the leaf margins are what I would call unevenly scalloped - the edges are rounded off. In the posting just above this, the zigzag edges come to sharp points, like a more effective knife edge. On the 'Umineko', the pointed serrations are sort of in pairs. All of the ornamental cherries have serrations rather than rounded scalloped edges, often a little more deeply serrated (very little) and sometimes with little hairs at the serration tips.

    I don't know whether this nice tree could have started out as 'Umineko', but you can find a lot of 'Kanzan' trees around that are on their way to being Prunus avium. Where you see one of those two-tone trees, the leaf comparison should be very clear.
