Swelling Buds

Signs of life around the garden the other morning.  I’ve started to walk round and inspect things a bit more often, expecting to see buds starting to swell on some plant/tree species.  I’m looking forward to some flowers within the next few weeks:


European Hornbeam (Carpinus Betulus)


Flowering Peach (Prunus Persica)


Japanese Apricot (Prunus Mume)


Damson Tree (Prunus Insititia)


Japanese Maple (Acer Palmatum)

Things are happening…

Off work over half term.  My usual time to begin repotting.  You should expect a flurry of posts after I see a friend about acquiring some pots today.  Had a look around the garden/greenhouse and pleased to see the early sprouters behaving true to form.
