    the hybrid Victoria/greengage tree looks like it will give plenty of fruit this year and I actually remembered to take a photo and having figured how to put it on here, they are the size of a large damson and have a really sweet taste when ripe, a very lucky find..

    So Charles Ross Apple was next to bloom, followed by Worcester pearmain (but they should have been the other way around ) and quince Vranja (no pic tho - sorry). The only ones left to come are a few blooms on bramley and Spartan apple.

    The quince is too pretty to go by without a piccy and the fact it is still going despite the weather this last week.
