I have been pottering around in the garden and watching the leaves start to unfurl over the past week.
Once I had finished in the kitchen I took my washing to hang out and could hardly believe my eyes.
I walk past these every time I venture into the garden and there has just been a faint touch of green and then this morning POW
One of my "sort of" espaliered apples is covered in deep pink buds, it is the only one but it is in the most sheltered spot.
While taking this I glanced down, to make sure that I was on level ground, and spotted these.
This little clump of violets have popped up at the base of an Aquilegia, the colour is poor here, the sun was so strong it has bleached it.
Once they have both finished flowering I will attempt to get the violets out and into a shadier spot, they have been donated by a kind bird as I have never had violets here before.
Michael finally decided what to have for Dinner tonight, Rib Eye steak, homemade chips and sweetcorn, as Fran does not eat corn I will cook some broccoli as well.
Then if I can squeeze some in a piece of cake and custard, I changed the Apple cake recipe slightly, I left out the fruit and put flaked roasted almonds in and added cinnamon.
That all for today, the birthday boy has got 2 books to show me and 3 DVD's which we will have a quick look at and probably watch 1 later. I can only hope that he does not want to show me how the router works. LOL
