After a winter lasting what seemed like an eternity, the sun is finally shining and the sky is all fabulous and blue. The crocuses never did flower but the 3 pink hyacinths are doing well, albeit propped up by sticks, and the yellow primulas are looking all splendidly traditional along the border.
There’s no sign of my 4 little bees making a move from their rusty baked bean tin and I wonder if they actually managed to survive the winter – I do hope so.
My fabulously tall wild cherry tree was nothing more than a weed a few years ago, deposited by the compost bin presumably by an overhead bird, and now it is bloom and looking spectacular against the clear blue sky…
