03/06/2017 Think today's rain may have caused a problems with the cherries and rotting but we shall see. Photos before the rain started.
Maximum temperature 21C, minimum 11C. 17 km/h NE wind with 28 kmh gusts. Rain most of the day, not measured yet, a few photos before it really started.
Rarely do I ever see Barn Swallows on the ground so this was a a special few photos for me...
Linden Tree. the leaves and flowers can be dried and used as a tea. I have tried as I quite like it, but the flowers are full of tiny black insects that are impossible to wash out, and only shake out if I actually dry the flowers. Too much hassle!
Mirabelle plums - we have 7 trees all full of fruit! Thankfully not ready yet, so I have time to relax before sorting out the plums after the cherries
The quinces will only be ready around October, at this stage the tree is laden so we hope there are no hail storms looming in the future months.
Daisy and bug.
Young courgette plant looking healthy.
Apple an quince crumble made from fruit canned two years ago!. We need to use up all the old 'stuff''!!
