Last year

Last year we bought a peach tree. We put it in the green house all snuggled up in fleece to protect it from the cold. Look at it this morning. :lol: I am one happy bunny.

Spring might, at last, be on its way ......

(though it's clouded over here, so a bit chilly .... ) but I've just bought some Easter cards .....

and according to the weather forecast it's going to stay nice-ish over the weekend (well, no North wind, and light rain rather than the heavy forecast earlier in the week .... )

Keep it snug in the greenhouse.

It looks wonderful. I'm not allowed to touch any plants we have as I have the opposite of green fingers. Sometimes I only need to look at something and it will die. :(
