Today was a wonderful day. Sunny, fairly warm and in it I found a couple of nice things.
First up was cherry blossom on the ground in one of our parks. Rreally nice if you like to sit and enjoy the view. It was a shame that I had to blow it off the path but it tends to stick and get quite slippery when it rots down. It was only blown off the paths onto the grass or the borders, we have a lot of older people who use the park, so in this case health and safety took a front seat to beauty.
Speaking of cherries…
Someone has been chopping down cherry trees. We have no idea who did it or where the trees were, but we found these dumped on one of our plots.
I’m having one for my garden and the boss is having the rest for his burner at home. Apparently cherry wood burns very nicely!
Next thing I noticed today is that the judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum) we have at work was beginning to flower again!
Two years ago, the last time I was working there, it really wasn’t doing well. There were only a few leaves and apparently it didn’t flower at all last year. But it’s back again. I’m so very happy about this. B-)
And finally… Another rescue. Not mine this time. Last year the guys in the team found this pear (Maybe an apple?) in a rec ground just in its roots, no pot. Being the guys they were they brought it back to the yard and popped it in some spare soil we always have around… Just in case. B-)
Well, this year it has opened! Will we see any fruit? No idea. The year they rescued it there were only a few leaves and nothing else. Not a shock considering it had been uprooted, dumped and probably water starved until it was rescued.
We would like to see it bear fruit, there are plenty of bees and other pollinators around to see to it, so we shall see.
And that was it. Nothing happened in my garden.. Mainly because I am too tired and not had a chance to be out in it!
Hope you are all having a great week!
