Green Gage Blossom

green gage blog rTwo huge old Green gage trees framing the orchard are in full blossom- more than making up for the fact that they never seem to produce any fruit! This year the cooler spring has timed their flowering perfectly to coincide with the lovely white Narcissus actaea dotted amongst the fruit trees- the orchard is going to be so beautiful in a few years when the trees grow and the bulbs naturalise and multiply. Cherry trees about to burst into flower next then the apples and pears. Bees are busy in the garden at last- it is lovely to hear them working the flowers and trees around the garden.
