    Oh it’s not a cherry tree it’s a -I’m damned if I know. We’ve been trying to figure that one out for almost a year now. Not a cherry, not a blackthorn or whitethorn either. No visible fruit…

    I think te spider was somewhat disappointed.

    Plum, maybe?
    Hopefully you will get some pictures of the emerging fruit later in the season, if the bees manage everything right.

    I love the third pic too, it’s wonderful. Poor spider! But I bet she was not fooled… the blossoms probably hold suspiciously still compared to an insect…

    I thought it was some sort of crab apple but if no visible fruit, then ?? I’m stumped too. So to speak. :-)

    There are many species of cherries and plums, some of which have been hybridized and bred into ornamental cultivars. These often have a very showy bloom and little or no fruiting. The fruits would be tiny and not very good, anyway.

    This is quite embarassing, since I graduated in dendrology and I did not notice that it is not a cherry. It indeed is not a cherry. And I am completely at a loss as to what it is. The habitus would indicate some species of the genus Prunus however. A close-up of the bark, tree bud, full leaf and one flower would help to identify the species :-).

    Maybe there is an equivalent to Tpyos, Specios…

    The fourth and the fifth would make good patterns for porcelain (coffee cups or plates for example). Though, I’d expect implementing the fifth might be difficult. Even as a photo one would expect that a contrast like that wouldn’t work, but somehow it does.
