09/04/2017 Busy in the garden today.

Maximum temperature 24C, minimum 8C.  8 kmh S wind.   Dry.
Apple blossom.

Think this may be the male bee of Eucera longicornis.

Bee and Rosemary.

Blue bells in bud.

Californian poppy.

60 potatoes planted and the rest of the carrots.  Also vinca planted on the other side of the hedge hopefully to take over the weeds!

Wild violets.

Quince blossom.

  4. That does look springish - nice. We have had our first chilly (and wet) weekend here, maybe the world is still working.
