Oops! I have just noticed

Oops! I have just noticed that this observation was uploaded by someone who would undoubtedly know a dogwood if it bit him, so I think I must be wrong!

Cornus mas

Bit of a longshot but perhaps Cornelian Cherry or something closely related?

Cornus mas

Yes I agree with Chris,I grow this species in my garden, the fruit is edible when ripe{red] although I haven't tried it myself.
