This morning. Thursday 20th April (my birthday, as it happens). Several trees weighed down by blossom, the daffodils, tulips, wild violets all blooming with life and colour. Now? We’ll see what survives this wintery onslaught. Oh Spring, where art thou?
At Easter, three days ago we were sitting here enjoying a cup of tea in the afternoon sunshine.
This poor apple tree might just bear fruit this year, since the blossom is still in tight bud. But we’ll have to wait and see.
Great lumps of snow slither and thump to the ground
The dirty smudges on the image are fat snowflakes falling.
This corcodus (mirabel/cherry plum) tree is covered in blossom. Now? I doubt if we’ll have any fruit this year either.
