welcome to my little suburban oasis, filled with flowers,fruit trees and vegetables

Tuesday, 12 April 2016

Yesterday, for the first time in a long while, I joined hubby on his trip to the allotment as he wanted my opinion on the various bits of brassicas that have over-wintered. The purple-sprouting broccoli had both run to seed and been nibbled by birds, but the cabbages are standing well, and if they aren't very large, at least there's a lot of them. I brought three of them home to clear ground ready for potatoes; at a guess the one on the right is about grapefruit sized!

The fruit trees seem full of bud, particularly this  pear (left) and cherry (below), and another week or so should see them full of blossom.

 Blossom of another sort lined the road to the allotment - council-planted ornamental cherries which always look so beautiful at this time of year, and I just had to grab a few pics out of the car window.
