Sadly the blackthorn blossom has already faded and is scattering like confetti but the leaves now starting to appear.
I don’t cut back the dogwood stems but leave them for the leaves, and then flowers, to appear.
What has really pleased me it is that it looks like the hawthorn is going to flower for the first time.
The old, rusty metal dustbin I use as an incinerator on the rare occasion when I do need to burn anything.
I got the council invoice for the rental of the plot 2014-2015 during the week and was pleasantly surprised to find that the cost is the same as last year at just £21-30. This is one bill that I’m more than happy to pay straight away.
It looks like there’s going to plenty of rain tomorrow then thankfully dry and sunny for the rest of the week, when I’ll be making a start sowing plenty of flower and vegetable seeds.
Have a good week!
