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.

The most famous example of cherry blossom in Yorkshire is undoubtedly the The Stray in the centre of Harrogate. The tree lined avenues that criss-cross the 200 acres of grassland in the heart of the spa town turn into an explosion of pink in Spring.

This is in addition to the daffodils and crocus displays that are abundant across the green spaces and parks across Yorkshire.
