No April Fool...

It really has been gorgeous weather today. The white jasmine looks like it'll blossom within a week or so and the smallest of my two magnolia has finally flowered. The red jasmine remains stubbornly without buds. I hope it's just a late starter this year as the bees go mad for it.

The wild cherry blossom is all but gone, however, for the first time I've actually got blossom on my newest cherry tree (bought two years ago from Tesco). I even have several plants growing from where I planted my Wild Flower mix last spring. Clearly some of the plants self-seeded which is excellent news.

The bees show no signs of emerging from their hotel, which is slightly worrying as I felt certain this lovely sunshine would be ideal for them to hatch out. I expect they'll do it in their own time.

I've harvested my parsley and chives and they were delicious with my salad at lunchtime. Hopefully that was the first of many home grown meals...
