It's April and the garden finally is bursting into life. As each week goes by less and less soil is visible as green starts to become the predominate colour again. April is always blustery here and with every gust a little more of the Cherry blossom is carried across the garden like confetti. As well as cherry blossom in the air so too are the bees, bee -flies and ladybirds while the bats have started their night time sorties again.
Glorious sunny days also bring frosty nights and there's always the threat to the camellia flowers and plum blossom. Weather forecasts are never missed! Ghostly outlines ...thankfully not too often can be seen at twilight as I shroud the at risk blooms in fleece in the hope that our future harvest of fruit will be protected.
