The plums are starting into flower. This is the first time for some of these trees .I really hope the weather doesn’t turn very cold or frosty again as this would kill the flowers and put paid to my plum crop for another year.
I have a small clump of Primroses that I planted last year they look so pretty I must sow some more under the hawthorn hedge.
I got half of the new shrubs planted in the stony patch at the bottom of the meadow . and I took a chance and transplanted a large Ceanothus. I think I may have killed it. This spell of hot weather has taken its toll despite watering with copious amounts of water. All the shrubs have been mulched with last years hay. This will help keep the soil moist underneath and aid them to establish
The fritillaries are flowering this is the first time I have ever grown this pretty little flower ,I love its nodding little bells
