Are these Cherry Trees? What is this thorny plant?

Hello I have what I think are Cherry trees?? They bloom white flowers every year. this Is from last night
New cherry?

Every year they yield beautiful little red cherry looking This is from last year. fruits
Cherries? They have a tart-y sour taste so I marked them up as prunus cerasus ?

At least that's what I I can figure?

Next question- is there is thorny plant that is growing right at the base of one of my 3 "cherry trees" it doesn't have any blooms or anything but its very sharp!!
this is the one at the base

Its kind of growing and possibly wrapping itself around the tree

Next question! what is this pretty pink flower tree?
From far away in 2012

It yielded bigger looking cherry type things one year (2012) but hasn't bloomed or yielded any fruit since then.

Thank you for this great forum!!

I was thinking that looks like some kind of a berry bramble, too.

Thorny plant is blackberry. The clumps at the end of the stem are flower buds.

Top plant is cherry of some type. The fruit should contain one largish pit.

Re: Are these Cherry Trees? What is this thorny plant?

Thorny thing is wild blackberry/raspberry/possibly wineberry. These are all the same shape, size, etc and called bramble fruit together. So whatever you have there is a bramble fruit, one of those three.

Cherries are tart cherries.
When I wait 3 months for my mango seedling to sprout, and then it damps off.
