sorry about 'appples!'

I have just spent about 5 frustrating minutes trying to correct my typo. Is there no way to correct errors here? It's embarrassing!

Thanks, Methal

I've looked at a lot of images for bird cherry and it certainly looks similar, but mine's leaves have fewer veins and are more deeply toothed. Perhaps this is because it is young, or perhaps it is a hybrid?
