I would love to know what these trees are! 

The first one currently has white blossom on it:-

The second tree I planted in my back garden several years ago when it was about four feet high.  It is now thriving and the label on it has long fallen off, and I cannot recall what this tree is!  This tree is now about twelve feet high (the fence is six feet), and looks lovely this time of year.

well I'll take a guess, the first one might be Prunus 'Avium Plena', the double wild cherry, and the second is a crab apple, possibly Malus 'Royalty'.  Have a look at those.

just look like cherry blossoms

Salino, I think you're right about the Malus Royalty, my tree certainly matches that description.  Some of the descriptions I've read for Avium Plena says it bears fruit in the summer, although I can't say I've ever noticed fruit on my tree!  I'll need to have a good look over the next few months to see if it does, in which case you'll be right on both counts, thank you!
