Yesterday we noticed some apples hanging over the fence from the neighbours tree.
So we picked them.
Now I know you are supposed to hand them back but well the owner of the house rents it out so we kind of figured there were as much ours as the tenants
Anyway we only got a few there are tons for them to collect if they want them.
I’ve tried to work out what they are but all my guesses wouldn’t be ripe yet and these are definitely ready. They are crisp very white flesh and a good balance of sweet and sharp.
Suggestions welcome as to their identity
The cherry plum tree is in full blossom.
It’s always the first tree to come out, sometimes as early as late January, this year it was Monday when the blossom finally opened.
I can see it from my window and it looks wonderful.
When I was out walking at the weekend I saw this acorn…
In fact lots of the acorns were similarly afflicted by the curious knobbly growth.
I wonder if mighty oaks can still grow from it?
Right now when I look out of the window this is what I can see.
Obviously not quite that close up. I mean I did hang out the window to take the shot.
Lovely though isn’t it.
And it will be gone in a few days.
