Early April

We have lived here for 17 years and the wisteria was here long before that.  Every year the wisteria is covered in lush green growth but we have only about 5 flowers on the whole plant.  This year looks like there could be a bumper amount of blooms.  Maybe the months of torrential rain gave the roots a good drink and encouraged it to flower.

The plum tree has lost its creamy blossom but the pear tree is prolific in pretty white blossom this year.  I do hope we have a good crop of pears.

I have planted up a new area with 3 early strawberry plants and two types of thyme.  I will add to this bed as the season progresses.


  1. It all looks so lovely, Simone! It's so exciting about your wisteria. Blossoms on fruit trees are so hopeful.

    Wishing you much fruit and many flowers!

  2. Wisteria is looking good, fingers crossed we don't get a late frost.
