    My black cherry plum. Only a few blooms.

    My aprimira has a lot more open flowers since this pic and it looks like most of my plums will be in bloom by next week

    My nectarine in the greenhouse is pretty much done.

    Plum Opal in full bloom as is Damson Merryweather, Plum Jubilee, Marjorie's Seedling and Shropshire prune are all on the brink of opening.

    Cherries and cherry plums will be next but still a little way off i think

    My plum is now starting to flower too. Pears are on the brink.

    Plums are well and truly out. (Victoria, opal, marjories seedling in the front and back. Cambridge gage is still to come and damson is still having a nap)

    Most of the pears are out. Just waiting for my big tree which a think is a Williams. (other trees Butirra, Santa Maria and Concorde)

    Also my wild cherry and kordia cherry (the kordia is a bit confusing as I thought it was meant to be the same flowering time as my other cherries )

    Wild cherry is just a mass of flower and my large pear is now joining her and the honey bees are enjoying themselves. Hubby hasn't noticed any rapeseed on his travels but there aren't masses of bees, but still grateful of the ones there are.

    White heart cherry (which is all flower no growth, may come out after next year) and sweetheart are out. Stella is thinking of joining in (almost a month after VC's ).

    It is fight who will be out next week quince or some of the apples. The damson definitely won't be.

    Most of the blossom has dropped off the soft fruit trees leaving some behind teeny weeny Peaches & Nectarines..........

    My Conference Pear has blossom on it

    That's it - that’s ALL the blossom on the pear so far

    The Jonagold trees have all got flower buds on them, almost ready to burst

    As does the Hedelfinger cherry
