Fruit Tree (?) Identification Please
This 'tree' was planted over 5 years ago and has just started to flower now for the first time.
I think it must be one of cherry, apple, pear or damson/plum as we went through a phase of trying to grow new trees from the pips of what we'd eaten off the existing trees.
The 'old' fruit trees aren't in blossom yet, so I have nothing to compare the buds and flowers to. Nice blossom though eh? Made my day when I saw it - and it lasted through the storm over the weekend....
Thanks in advance.

Flowers have two parts, male and female. When a flower is fertilised by another flower on another tree, half the genetic material from each flower goes to make the seeds. So, like children, they all have half of their parents’ genetic material but not all the same genetic material. Brothers don’t all look identical.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
