It’s time to think pink in Cheshire.

One of the finest indications that winter is on its way out is the spectacular display of blossom around the green spaces of the county. Most people associate spring blossom to the imported cherry blossom which is the national flower of Japan, however blossom is the term given to a cluster of flowers that bloom on any plant - so people include magnolia, hawthorn and blackthorn as “blossoming” varieties.

Cheshire and the Wirral have a number of prominent displays that are best viewed around April, Tatton Park, Arley Hall, Dunham Massey all have blossom displays of some note during the early months of the year.

In our towns and villages, many of the green spaces will also turn into an explosion of pink. Knutsford, Chester and Thornton Hough on the Wirral all have fine examples of the bloom.
