From Winter to Spring in One Week

This was the scene a week ago, two days with snowfall and frost.  We've had such a cold spring.

One week on, we are wearing short sleeves and the temperatures are 10 degrees centigrade higher.  Lots of things are loving it, such as these narcissus.

 Everything is growing very fast now, these apple blossom buds were barely there last week, they will be out this week.
 The plum tree started flowering in the snow, which worried me, last year the late frosts killed a lot of blossom.  But happily it saved most of its flowers until this week, so I am anticipating lots of fruit this year.
 The strawberries are growing on too, with the first flower buds visible.
I have a lot of catching up to do now after the slow spring, today I planted out courgettes, pumpkins, marrows and lettuce which were all started indoors.  Lots more to plant this week.
