Growing pains...

I'm hoping that the amount of blossom on the trees this year equates to the amount of fruit we'll get -  although we had blossom last year, we only had a handful of apples, very few pears, and none of them edible. This year, the apple tree is covered in blossom, the pear tree had lots (although it is now mostly gone) and the two new apple trees (one is James Grieve, the other a hand-me-down from a friend) also had smatterings of blossom. More importantly, we have a little bit of sunshine - so we shall wait and see!

Off to post some birthday gifts now, which will hopefully arrive in time!
