I’m so glad I took the opportunity to snap some pics of the tree blossom in my garden before the wet weather set in.
What a difference a week of rain makes! The glorious blooms shown here have taken a bashing this week – as soon as the patio dries I’ll be busy sweeping up the spent petals. I just hope pollination occered before the insect attrctin petals were blown from the trees.
My cordon trained Pear ‘Beurre Hardy’ is flowering for the first time this year (white blossom in pic above), only two or three clusters low down on the plant, but hopefully it’s a taste of things to come.
Apple ‘ James Grieve’.
If the number of blooms are anything to go by I should be in for a decent crop from this small container-grown tree.
My ornamental cherry, either ‘Kanzan’ or ‘Pink Perfection’ (I inherited the tree so this is an educated guess), puts on a stunning show each year, but even without the heavy rain, the show is always over too soon
