    Cherry trees with only the remnants of a spectacular blossom display

    Cherry trees with only the remnants of a spectacular blossom display

    When I went to collect my peasticks the other day I passed one of the local cherry orchards positively frothing with white blossom.  It was utterly beautiful but I was unable to stop and admire it more closely. Determined not to miss out – and wanting Andrew to share the experience – we went to the orchard where we rent a tree (and get to pick the crop) over Easter but the blossom had gone.  The hot weather had hurried the process along and now there were just a few remaining flowers and lots of tiny cherries (good news for later).  I spoke to the owner and he told me that he had been amongst the trees admiring the blossom on the Thursday before Easter but by the time he returned in the evening the whole lot had dropped.   – www.rentacherrytree.co.uk
