April 2017

 We're in the season of cherry blossom.
 The plum tree has been flowering well too.

 Dwarf narcissi have been spectacular.

 More plum blossom.
 On the veg plot, our reconstruction and clearing efforts have resulted in a new herb bed and two much larger beds bordered by new paths all around. The compost bins have been moved to a shaded spot behind the camera in this photo.
 As an example of what this clearance work involves, here is a before and after pic of an area containing self seeded raspberries and nettles.  The nettles will be finally cleared with weedkiller.
 Digging out raspberries on a steep slope is not recommended!
The Robin enjoyed our efforts with lots of food provided for him.  Next week will be planting week.
