The National Trust has launched its first #BlossomWatch Day tomorrow to encourage people to share their photos on social media of this year’s blossom as it blooms across the province

The charity is creating an interactive map to chart the progress of the blossom by asking people to tag the location of their photos.

A National Trust spokeswoman said: “As restrictions ease and loved ones can finally start to meet outside, the conservation charity is urging people to use the easing of restrictions to share in one of nature’s most magnificent natural spectacles.

“The recent topsy-turvy weather – with plunging temperatures of up to minus five at night and some areas experiencing snowfall – has given this year’s blossom an uncertain start but it is expected to reach its peak in the coming days and weeks.”
