Blue Skies & Blossom5th March 2014 • In The Garden • Stephanie Donaldson
It’s not just me who is enjoying the newly arrived and glorious spring weather – as I type this sentence, a butterfly has flitted past the window. And earlier as I did my morning patrol to see what new delights are on offer I watched a bumblebee foraging in the pussy willow. The most exciting discovery of the morning was the peach blossom – I cover the tree in January and February to help keep peach leaf curl at bay – today seemed a perfect day to uncover it and there was the blossom. What a treat.
