Spring is to be seen here with the arrival of blossom on our apple tree in the courtyard. We won the apple tree a few years ago at the Daglan Spring Festival. Thinking that we had won a small plant it came as a great surprise when it turned out to be a tree. But we are so glad that we did for it producers tasty apples every year. The apples are unique to this area, developed by a grower in St PomPon, they are quite small, sweet and tasty. We do not have the space to plant it in the ground so it resides in a large pot.

The strawberry plants have all started to produce flowers, which means that the first crop of fruit should be ready to eat in May.
A slower start to the grape vines this Spring which have been hampered by the recent sharp frosts that we have be getting lately.
I just had to include Angel who follows the sun around the courtyard. Here she is sitting at the bottom of the apple tree.
