Habitat for the first photo is exposed fields on the track to my house the other's are in woodland clearing only about 1/8 of a mile further down the track,so it show's how different a tree can look depending on the location,must say I prefer the gnarled one.The smell of the flowers was rather over powering in the woods,it is said that it is the same chemical that a decaying corpse produces,it was also classed as unlucky to bring the blossom into your home.
