No, not the Neil Diamond song.
It's a cherry tree, I think.
Whilst out walking the dog, I noticed this tree in the distance, in full flower. Yes, I know, it's early March. So I decided to investigate further, much to my dog's annoyance I must add. You see, he wanted to go in the opposite direction, and it was his walk after all.
But it was a nice sunny day, so we got a bit closer, and Joey decided to pull on the lead every time I tried to take a picture. It was his walk after all.
And then we got up really close. Joey was sniffing around under the tree by this time, so I was allowed to take a photo. It was his walk after all.
And in conclusion, I think it is a wild cherry, or Prunus avium, but I could be wrong. I did notice that the cultivated cherry trees by the roadside were all in bud, and their leaves were just showing too. I'm sure these trees normally flower in April. Looks like spring is coming early this year.
