Densely packed trees of and full flowers. This year's crop, however, hasn't faired so well. It has done better, oddly, in Leeds in the town centre.
Still large blossoms, but not nearly so dense. Far more green than pink. They faired even worse in the north of Sheffield, despite it being somewhat more rural.
The only word I have for that miserable effort is "depressing".
