Away in Sussex for three days over the weekend but today and yesterday back on the early morning pre breakfast hour mowing and late afternoon (after day at boatyard) return to rake up and anything else there is time for. Today transplanted some of the seedlings and prepared a first bed in the tunnel. 

Blossom on the pears now - a little on both Beths, plenty on the Gorham and some on Harvest Pear. A little cherry blossom on Bullion. All quinces in leaf, some apples opening - the Sops-in-wine near the medlar is showing signs of blossom - hope it has a pollination partner. Autumn raspberries are walking over towards blackcurrants.

Early mowing is a joy - but the grass is growing fast fast fast (and the docks :-( )
