In a month or so’s time, blossom will be everywhere. But on a brisk March Sunday, in a row of trees that were entirely bare, this really stood out. I love the shape – so airy and delicate. I’d love to know what variety it is.
STOP PRESS:
Miriam, a reader of this blog, has emailed to say: ‘I think the variety is: Prunus x subhirtella ‘Autumnalis Rosea’. I have one in my front garden and it is a welcome sight at this time of year as it is the first of the cherry trees to come into bloom. Later when the blossom has gone the leaves come out.’

Thanks Miriam! It’s definitely one for my tree wishlist.
