Mark and Felicity stroll through the cherry trees. Participants of the Alnwick Garden Elderberries Blooming Well group are seen decorating paper lanterns which will be hung in the pavilion for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The Elderberries 'Blooming Well' group use a mixture of targeted therapeutic horticulture and arts activities to enrich the lives of those taking part. The canopy of blossom grows each year. Thousands of narcissi provide a colourful carpet in the orchard. Snake's-head Fritillary is also dotted throughout the orchard. Thousands of flowers have opened up on each tree.
