Thursday 25th April 2013 - Promenade Repairs and Enjoying the Weather

No real complaints about the weather; admittedly there is a chill in the wind and a frost on the top of the chickens coop the other morning but it has been bright and sunny. Some welcome rain fell during the hours of darkness the other night and this has done the garden good. The blossom on our Greengage tree has opened, the potatoes are showing and the line of radish seed has germinated. We have eaten the last of the Purple Sprouting and the plants have been consigned to the compost bins with the space soon filled with Broad Bean plants. We still have the Russian Kale to eat plus on Monday I picked a bowl of Spinach and today Chard. Walking up the footpath to Northrepps on Saturday afternoon, we saw the first Bluebells so it won’t be long now before we can enjoy carpets of blue in the woodlands above Overstrand. This afternoon I could not resist taking a photo of the Blackthorn in full flower; providing there are sufficient bees to pollinate, there should be a bumper crop of Sloes this autumn.
