Blossom

From March until July, this has been the best for native tree blossom that I can recall in our part of the North Pennines. It started with sloe and is now coming to an end with elder. Here they are, in chronological sequence

Blackthorn aka Sloe



Wild cherry aka gean



Hawthorn




Bird cherry


















Rowan aka mountain ash


















Elder

  1. It has been a good show this year. Blackthorn was good but the Hawthorn which is just finishing here was superb.

  2. Best hawthorn I can remember, Adrian - though I think the elder was better last year
