Spring is certainly in full swing all the trees are starting to sprout their blossom and each time the wind blows it gently scatters their confetti to the ground in gentle flurries.
Blossom at the bottom of the garden
At the bottom of the garden the Cherry is in full blossom (not that I ever to get many of them as being at work the birds usually beat me to it) that is surrounded by two ballerina apple trees although there does not appear to be much blossom on the apples this year. Is it the same throughout the country. Now is the time for watching for frost as it could impact on the later to come crop like it did round her last year on the sloes and elderberries. Not a good year for them last year.
The house 4 doors up has a very large magnolia in the front garden and it looks absolutely exquisite at the moment in full blossom.
A swing in the Apple orchard
Hip Hip Hooray
As I watch the apple blossom gently blow away
As i swing high and low
And up through the boughs
Going faster and faster nearly touching the clouds
Nearly catching the rainbow high in the sky
And then falling then slowing
Back to the ground
