may come your way…

Just when you thought it was safe to unwrap plants and harden-off the seedlings; the blossom begins to open and new leaves unfurl. When the winter woollies have been washed and put away for another season… Suddenly its winter again!

Cherry  in bloom - finally

The past few days of watching the cherry blossoms fattening, they have burst open into pink and white frilly tutus, but the wind blew up overnight tearing the blossoms from the bough…

New greens...

The grey beech trees are putting on their new spring clothes…

waiting...

Thinking I would be planting out the over-wintered plants but instead they are wrapped up in fleece or still in the mini-greenhouses…

Apple blossom time; almost...

But its not all doom and gloom, the fruit trees are budding…

Cowslip

The garden is filling up with spring flowers, and everything putting on a growth spurt. But still no swallows or house martins; perhaps they saw the weather forecast and decided to summer on the continent, could be tempted to join them!

Whatever the weather, enjoy the season and thanks for stopping by!

Though April showers may come your way,

They bring the flowers that bloom in May.

So if it’s raining, have no regrets,

Because it isn’t raining rain you know,

it’s raining violets.

April Showers  (1921)

Music by Louis Silvers & Lyrics by Buddy De Sylva
