Such a busy time of the year , but I,m busy doing nothing ,just staring at the garden . I have seven treees in blossom in varying degrees , some are just going over others are in full bloom .
The bramley apple is just taking on its glory ,the pear is full of wonderment . The sparrows flutter in and out among it,s branches causing the petals on the blossom to fall . It,s like being at a wedding and confetti being thrown . A new tree planted , a flowering Almond even gave a good show of what it will be like next year . A sweet cherry ,not very big but always gives lovely juicy fruit . We bought it as a cordon but my husband used to say it wasn,t natural to use a tree that wayso it grows as an upright. The two crab apple trees are just smothered in frothy blossom , one in my back garden the other at the front of my home where other people can admire it . a newly planted victoria plun is just coming into leaf but no blossom as yet and an ornamental tree that I cannot remember the name of has now shed its finery . Besides all this the rest of the garden is like a painting with spring bulbs and flowers in abundance .I seem to spend many hours looking out on this glorious sight .
Not only the flowers , the birds are so busy . I don,t get all the wonderful birds that others around me do but ,sparrows, starlings ,blackbirds and a couple of resident robins seem to hang around .,wouldn,t it be fascinating if we knew what they were on about . they are so noisy in their conversation .
This time of the year passes so quickly , I don,t feel guilty sitting around . I sit sewing, reading and just enjoying this special time of the year .
