I thought it was about time I took a few more pics so have just been out in the garden before I shoot off to Warwick for a concert this evening. Taken in a bit of a hurry but I hope you enjoy them.

A couple of weeks ago I bought 4 new small-ish fruit trees. A Quince that I have planted in front of the pergola; a Conference Pear, a Peach and an Apricot against the fence (left to right). The Pear has just come into blossom so have added that on its own. Then the Cherry which is just beginning to come into blossom and below that is an Erysimum - (if they all upload OK of course)

PS, the fence faces due south so they will get plenty of sun (if we get a summer!)

Your fruit trees look lovely and healthy John - smashing garden too.

Lovely John - as always 

Where you been, what you been up to?

Lovely pics everyone.

Love the 'woodland walk' one Tracey.

Ah! I thought I had said - I had a replacement knee on 31st Dec. and have been recuperating. Doing all the exersizes and a whole lot of walking. All has been very beneficial & I managed to plant 4 new fruit trees a couple of weeks ago. Greenhouse is now full of new seedlings etc and you can see some of the brassicas hardening off on the little shelf on the pergola. JH

A few more trees from my walk this morning...

Looking at it now, it seems that the middle one has a seated female figure on its trunk....see what I mean?

05/04/2014 at 14:37

No.  You must have a wild imagination Steve. 

05/04/2014 at 14:58

I can see a female face, with long hair.... 

05/04/2014 at 15:10

yes - head inclined to her right with hair hanging down on the same side

05/04/2014 at 15:45

I can see her, look between the 2 lower branches for her head, long flowing hair and yes sitting and turning to look at us.  Love tree trunks, like the one in an earlier shot as well, hence the need for a stum , oops I mean stickery!

05/04/2014 at 16:51

KEF - just as well there's normal folk like us on here now and again.. I never see odd things in pix -  'the voices' always tell me to ignore them if I do....

Glad you're well John H. The new trees are bonny 

05/04/2014 at 17:14

Thanks KEF.  I thought it was blackthorn, but then realised that it's much too late for that to be flowering.

05/04/2014 at 17:58

Lovely pic David, can't see a lady on it though, nothing odd at all 

05/04/2014 at 21:26
