It doesn't look good, because the weather has been so flat and battleship grey, but blossom is out everywhere in town.
Perhaps not 100% yet, some trees still have the flowers in tight white buds while others have opened out, stamen reaching out towards a sun that just hasn't been there yet this spring.
Their blooms wait for the pollinators, but they aren't yet there, hiding away after a nice end to winter, as a freezing front sweeps down upon us.
Plum, blackthorn, and cherry all - braced for the frost and snow.

Blackthorn - one of my favourites - and the sloe gin that follows in a good year.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much all, I'm off gin. For now...ReplyDelete
