Chat'in Mulberries


I’m new to this, (not the garden tho’) thats not to say I know a lot !!! The spring has arrived , no its not, then wait again yes it has. In the last few weeks its been ‘’ has it started or not, all the buds out then the frost, will nature get round this change in the weather. My damson tree’s look really full of blossom (they are young 3, 4 & 5 yr old trees I’v put in), I do love damsons,makes fantasic jam & jelly. Lost a great ‘Bramley’ apple tree this year, cant see why, it was a very productive one. no sign of desease perhaps from below at roots! any sugestion please.
I’m looking out from my desk onto a ‘Camillia Tree, its grown tall (perhaps too tall) it was of a few shrubs that were here in the garden when we came, not sure of its name, its very pink, double, an early one, has many flowers on and a blackbirds nestin it.
I’m having a back operation next week, still got loads of plants to put in yet, not posible after op as it takes 3 mnths recoupe, Hope its not too soon to put them in.I’m sad already to miss best part of year.still some weeds will have thier day this year, but as Arnie says ’I’ll be Back’
Happy Digging Guys
