The First Day of Spring

Today is officially the first day of Spring and our cherry tree is in full blossom.  Last weekend it was still in bud.  I was really pleased to get this photo of a honey bee on the blossom.  There were several honey bees around and I also saw a bumble bee (white tailed, I think).

 The garlic I planted towards the end of January is looking good

and the broad beans, which I planted near the beginning of January have come up at last. I use Aquadulce, which is a hardy variety that can be planted in the Winter.  I prefer to sow the seeds in November when I can as this is meant to give the crop a head start where blackfly are concerned.
