Whoop whoop - everything and everyone appears to be jumping into life - amazing what a bit of sun light can do. Last year our damson tree had four flowers on it and managed a whole two fruit (one of which was spat out by a child as they didn't like it!).
This year every bough of the little tree is covered in pretty white flowers, so may be I'll have enough for a crumble this year (the rhubarb is also unfolding so may be able to bulk it out with that?).
It's not just plants that have been springing to life - we've been out for our first ice-cream fuelled bike ride. Euan has got his balanced bike sussed and could be heard screeching at the top of his voice - "No - I should be at the front!". And by foot power alone he normally was!
