tree planting

Back in action! Bean poles down and onions, garlic and shallots showing signs of growth.

IMG_1691This week I bought a bare root morello cherry and a damson tree to complete the mixed row of fruit trees bordering the path from the gate down to the allotment plots.

I thought I’d plant some snowdrops at the base too…

It was pouring with rain by the time I’d finished, with a friendly robin who sat watching in the cherry tree as I finished off, waiting for a wormy lunch.

  1. Great choice. Morello and Damson make the best of jams.
    My Morello was unwell last year. Will watch how it does, may have to investigate.
    I spotted robins in my garden, two, probably building a nest. They make me smile. I like to think they’re messengers of joy from another sphere.
