Wednesday wasn't too bad a day. We had a good deal of sunshine and it remained dry all day. Seems strange wanting dry weather after wanting rain for so much of the last 12 months but you can have too much of a good thing. The breeze remained out of the north east so it never got particularly mild but 13.9°C is better than most days over the last month.
At least the advantage of fruit trees and bushes is that they do their own thing regardless of the weather. They can always be relied on to produce a display of flowers in spring and then it’s in the hands of nature whether they produce an abundance of fruits in autumn.
Our crab apple “John Downie” is in flower in the garden. Last year we didn’t use the crab apples but I just have a sneaky feeling that this year we’re going to have to make use of every last bit of produce we can unless we get a sudden improvement in the weather.
