Plus i kinda thought it's easy to miss cherries as they're small and don't always get chance to colour before the bird munch them ;)

That is a good point too as it is right down on the back fence so would have been quite late in June that it was cleared so cherries could have easily been missed :giggle:

This one I nearly got rid of as it looked like a stupid patch of sticks all Autumn and winter but in the end I cleared out the old wood and now it has sprouted healthy new growth and started growing lovely yellow flowers - any ideas?

It's a Kerria japonica.

You are so good at this game @mamavan2 :giggle: I do have another one I took yesterday I'll post later and I took one of one of the earlier ones that we weren't sure about to see if anyone knows what it is now! BBL

The first one is a walnut.

The first one was definitely a walnut. The second one is a cinq feille - it was everwhere but with only very shallow roots / tendrils so I've pulled it all back and cut it almost back to the main (obviously quite old) branch that was hiding, put a stake for it to grow up and it is now shooting so I'll see if it is a keeper or not lol!

This has been confirmed by neighbours to be a plum :D

This one is still a mystery - not sure what it is called but it had lovely red berries (which the birds quickly ate!) in the winter! I've another down the back too!

And a new one! I almost got rid of this as I'd not seen it doing anything but it has come out in lovely purple flowers! Anyone know what it is? @mamavan2 :giggle:

The first could be a viburnum.
Still thinking about the second one.

Just reading up about viburnium and i think you are right and that is what it is - I can't find the exact variety of it (similar to the laurier variety but mine has red not black berries I think). Thanks again :thumbsup:
