Blossom everwhere, the parkways are lined with flowering trees - cherry fruiting, and pink and white japanese flowering.
Crab apple will come later. The black thorn is also splendid and there should be an ample supply of sloes (wild plums) later this year. Daffodils are every where alongside the roads and the tulips are coming out. In may 18 miles from here is the Spalding tulip festival and parade. In the garden the Flowering Currants are a mass of blooms and the muscari and hyacinths are in full bloom. My camellia is great and the cranberry is full of blossom. The primulas and primroses are gracing flower beds. The only problem is that March was very dry and I had to use the hosepipe several times.
I'me now off to do more potting up and then off to by more compost.
