Despite appearances, I did not take this photo of blackthorn against a stormy sky in March. I took it this morning.


There have been no mayflowers at all yet this year, and it needs to get a wiggle on, or they will be june-flowers. I was thinking that my big apple tree is going to have another fallow year this year, and requires a severe pruning - but observing the hawthorns and the lack of rowan-flowers, I may give it a bit longer before I do anything drastic. Admittedly, most of the apple trees inthe valley are flowering their hearts out, but this one could still be late, I think.
