Wordless Wednesday :- Words for snow

Our little sliver of an old Chivers orchard has erupted into a blizzard of white:

  1. Are you seeing a normal number of bees and other pollinators?

    • I am not absolutely sure. There are plenty of bumblebees, but possibly few honey bees. It’s been pretty windy here for the last couple of weeks, so it’s not easy to tell from the fruit trees. The crocuses were busy with them though, so I think that they are OK.

    Those blooms look like a definition of spring–lovely!

    It’s such a wonderful time of the year with all the blossom. Thanks for sharing the photos of yours.

  4. Such beautiful blossoms.

    That’s my kind of snow.

    They all sound delicious, do they give you a lot of fruit?

    • The damsons are very heavy croppers every year, the plums intermittent and the greengages always produce, but can be ruined if we get a lot of rain following a dry spell because they split so easily. I only use the sloes for gin and there are always enough for that.
