The sun shone again on Sunday, so we spent some time in the garden.

The apple blossom is fully out now, later than usual, but still indicating a future of apple pie, baked apples, palming off apples on anyone who will accept them etc etc.

We planted all the potatoes in deep pots, as these ones were most successful last Summer. Dh keeps topping up the pots with earth to encourage bumper cropping. We have four pots going, all looking like this:

Dh has also planted my gooseberry bush, and staggeringly, there is fruit forming on it. I didn't think I'd get any crop this year, but maybe we will get one dessert out of it.

  1. I am growing spuds in bags this year, not very pretty but not enough space otherwise.
    Your blossom looks lovely.
