    Apricot Petit Muscate about six years old. Not seen a lot of fruit yet .
    Will try covering some with net curtains which a vine suggested.https://www.flickr.com/photos/103667.../shares/17yz6Q

    Victoria Plum, always flowers, doesn't always get pollinated.

    Feed the soil, not the plants.

    My mirabelle came into flower some time in the past 2weeks whilst we were away.
    Two of our plum trees are just about to flower....

    Here in Durham my pear (Concorde) has big buds just beginning to burst. Only planted it a year ago so it'll be its first few flowers.

    Apples are still budded up, but it looks like the self fertile Cox which I gave a hefty pruning last year is going to end it's sulking and flower this year, and the bountiful. Cherry looks promising too.

    Spectacular year for blossom here - never seen so many flowers on the plum trees - probably down to the hot summer last year. Pear almost out and the apple not too far behind - even I might be moved to take a few photos when the apple blossom is out, if the weather is good then.

    A couple of plums have got some fully opened blossom, the wild cherry has one lower branch just opening.

    Sorry to hear about the frost, they can be a bugger at this time of year. Been lucky here so far this Spring down to -2 or so, but fortunately not low enough to do any damage. And one of the benefits of being up on a hill is it has to get pretty chilly in a radiation frost to cause problems with the tree blossom.
