What plant is it? My Ribes is astonishing this year (I think it has its roots in a sewer!), but flowering cherries in the area are nowhere near blossoming. I can't tell what your plant is - and it is absolutely lovely. Eye candy indeed! Good enough to eat!
Hi Cathy, I'm not sure what variety it is, but I think it's some sort of ornamental cherry. I'll have to find out!
You must be in a sheltered spot. Ours are nowhere near blossoming and we are in north Essex where it is really mild.
