Cherries


Bird cherry is in bloom now.  It's easy to miss the flowers which are mostly at the top of the tree.  This tree is near post 20 on the self-guided trail round Filnore Woods, in the part that we call Cuckoo Pen.


The Wild Cherry or Gean is also in bloom.  The photo below was taken near post 5, where the stream first enters the site from Merry Heaven Farm.

Earlier in March it was another member of the Prunus tribe, Blackthorn, that was showing off its white blossom. The picture below was taken at the entrance to the Tree Nursery Field near post 13 on 10th April.
