The unusually warm weather earlier in the week has really brought the garden along. Leaves are beginning to pop open on the trees and hedges showing glimpses of vibrant fresh green. Sadly the heat was too much for many of our daffodils, but to compensate our blossom is starting to flower. The plum trees are a haze of white flowers in full bloom. My favourite crab apple tree, with stunning burgundy leaves and dark pink blossom is nearly out. In the next week or so the apple trees will present their own spectacular display.
The tomatoes and tomatillos are growing fast and flowering. I have high hopes for our first crops in June.
