The plum blossom seems to have opened over night - spot the three little beetles in the flowers helping to pollinate. The bees have been busy as well. Click on picture to see full photo.
Nigel at work in the vegetable garden.
Jerusalem Artichokes (Topinambour). They are just starting to shoot again but we have dug up quite a lot for immediate eating. I mashed them the other night which I enjoyed, but Nigel thought they had lost their flavour. Last night they were roasted and were very yummy. They are also delicious fried lightly in butter (not slimming!) with garlic.
I had the easy job of cutting the grass. It is still a bit long (in places) but hopefully the next cut (if it stays dry!) will sort out the problem.
All washed and cleaned ready to be put back in the barn.
Not sure what this is but I suspect the tail end may have a nasty sting. I wish I could take pictures like 'Joan', but as Nigel tells me, my cheap camera does a reasonable job for its price.
