Again, thanks to everyone who helped me discover the answer! No wories, Hannah, about the learning-curve - I should have known how to resize photograps and now I do!
It's a lovely little tree, I'm very fond of it. This year I shall take very careful note to see if there is any sign of fruits on it - maybe the blackbirds ( we have many resident nesting/breeding pairs ) are getting to it before I even notice! I'm sure I'd have seen something so bright a red, though. I imagine lack of pollination is the issue, too cold for bees, yet, in the north of Scotland, and I've never seen another specimen of Cornelian Cherry in the area ( I've never seen one at all, come to think of it! ).
Many thanks,one and all....mystery solved!
