SkyWatch Friday - bursting into life

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!

I would like to take this opportunity to warn the good people of Staffordshire (if not the world in general!) - that there is now an appropriately sized peddle bike in the garage, that this weekend, theEu will be getting his hand on. Be afraid, be very afraid!

  3. Isn't it amazing what a year will do--I had a tulip tree that had a flower or two on it (my husband threatened to cut it down). The next year it was totally covered with gorgeous white blooms. Cute little guys you have there. Mickie :)
