Rain Rain Rain

We have had record breaking rain this week , after 2 years of drought, and we have been lucky not to have flood damage like some hills towns. The garden is a little slower to bloom this year as it is wetter and cooler.

First Week of Spring

The blossom has been a joy the last week and it's almost all over again already.

Blossom time

A day trip and an almond grove spotted that I just had to hop out of the car and take a shot of it

First of my 12 prunus trees

First buds out on my plum tree

Probably about a week to go before my blossom is fully out
