Oh my goodness, there I was, taking a breather after my exertions, watching with great pleasure a couple of sparrows chirping to one another on the pear tree above my head, when I suddenly felt a cold wind on my glowing cheek, the sky went dark, and I knew I had to stop congratulating myself on at last seeing the end of the ivy tunnel and make a dash for it. A hundred yard sprint got me to the back door just before the old penny size raindrops and by the time my gardening boots were replaced by my slippers the heavens had opened. And I had promised myself fun taking pictures of my two beautiful large prunus trees to post! Thank goodness I had not taken my camera up with me. Hundreds of daffs are in flower and the snowdrops and crocuses and primulas are a treat still but the prunus blossom has captured my heart.
