So far the only real sign of life from the fruit trees is courtesy of the pear. The blossom buds are on the verge of bursting open.
We have improved around the pond, are are waiting for the clematis plants to frantically climb the trellis.
We have added a gooseberry bush to fruit corner and thinned out the raspberries.
The vegetable patch is bare, although that strip of soil to the left of the photo has onions and carrots sleeping below its surface.
The only real colour comes from the primrose tubs in the front garden.
In trays of compost on window sills and around the house we have sown tomatoes, peppers, aubergines, peas, butternut squash and courgettes. Hopefully next month we will have lots more photos to share.
