Here we call them “Vogelbeerebaum” which literally translated would mean Bird berry tree. When they finish flowering they have clusters of orange coloured berries, which most of us know. As a child my mum always said do not touch them, the are poisonous. We have a few growing on our estate and this spring, for the first time, I took a closer look at their flowers. I never realised what a beautiful tree it is when blossoming. The flowers are like small roses and so pretty.
