The Cresta saga continues plus we have been away to family in Bristol for the weekend so only some morning mowing really over the last week. Nearly finished the apple orchard.

In Bristol I found lime trees in full leaf - I wonder why mine are so slow; is it because they are young?

Lots of apples in blossom - all the original batch have some (including the Colloggett Pippin and some on two of the Cottage Colloggetts). Weather set fair for week. Cresta should be launched tomorrow so perhaps Thursday I'll get a full day here. I need to start again at the west side mowing and I haven't even attempted the bottom dock field yet!
