After an incredibly wet and dismal May 1st, the sun has decided to show its face today. So what do we do when the weather is fine? We head off down to the orchard with camera in hand to see what the fruit trees are up to ^^
To get to the orchard, we have to go down a grassy bank, and follow the stream for a couple of metres . . . stream which is gushing and quite full after the recent rain.
Blackjack wasn’t tempted to go for a swim lol. It looks quite deep and current was pretty impressive. Alongside the stream there are loads of wild flowers enjoying the moisture and shade
Except Kate tells me this is Yellow Archangel, so my plans of nettle soup go out the window ^^
In the orchard, fruit trees are indeed doing their thing. Apple blossom is turning into apples
and cherry blossom into cherries lol.
The plum trees don’t seem to be doing much at the moment but I’m sure they will, all in good time.
Meanwhile, in the garden, in another shady spot . . . ferns are popping up everywhere, obviously enjoying the damp weather
Oh and another photo of my feet yes, I wanted to show you my snazzy “garden shoes”
Brilliant, aren’t they? Just plastic clog type things, that are easy to slip on and off, for when I go to the coop. My other half has a pair in boring black – I went for something slightly more fun ^^
