This morning I awoke to a a vision of white outside. Fortunately it wasn’t snow this time. However, it was frost.
A late frost can play havoc with apple and pear blossom. Last year a cold and frosty spring killed the fruit off before it could even get going. The apple tree in the garden didn’t have a single apple. The same was true of the apple and pear trees up and down the road.
Hopefully, the single frosty day won’t have caused too much damage, especially as the pear blossom is just about over. The blooms have now been replaced by the naturally droopy, slightly heart shaped leaves.
I’ll miss the bright white of the blooms, but the May blossom is just starting out to replace it.
Every week I write about the comings and goings in my garden on the edge of the City of Sheffield. You can see the latest episode here
I usually post the previous week each Monday if you want to see what else has been happening already this week.
