Though it’s by no means Balmy Spring, we did manage a few sunny days in the last week.
Buds began to swell.
That’s an ornamental quince. Looks like the right time to cut a few branches to bring inside and force.
Some leaves broke their buds just a tiny bit…Like sticking a toe in the water to see if the bath is ready. These black currants are always early.
Still no sign of asparagus. Last year, we picked the first spears on the 16th of April. I doubt we’ll be doing the same this year. But the garlic has gained another inch in height, one of the rhubarbs has a second leaf, and the bulbs are bursting into bloom…
If anyone remembers the name of the blue one in the photo, let me know…I’m drawing a blank.
It might be windy, and none-too warm…but it’s an improvement!
