Cherry trees have been planted widely across Scotland including West Dunbartonshire; as so often expressed - to brighten up a dreich winter. Indeed when the blossoms burst into profusion, it is often considered the first real sign of spring. 

Here we see them in late April within the Strathleven Industrial Estate.

Look closely and you may notice that some trees have both pink and white blossoms. Evidently a grafted combination. It is possible that the white ones are Yoshino cherry, scientifically known as Prunus × yedoensis
