A bit of colour

Recent photos have all been 'dun' colour. Dun is not an attractive colour, but pretty much the whole landscape is dun between October and around now, when patches of more interesting colours appear.

The weeping plum which I pruned with such skill in June, is now putting forth pretty pink flowers. I left a few small branches to see whether or not they would flower (I think that was the purpose -- maybe I just missed a few), and they aren't flowering. They seem to be getting ready to put out some leaves.

Thanks Gia.

That's certainly the plan - more flowers, more photos.

The apricot and almond are also getting ready to blossom now. Last year they put on a good show, and they're a good deal bigger this year...
