The long, cold and dark winter is finally over as Nature does her stuff.

This is a shot of one of the fruit trees taken on our ‘Orchard’ plot on the 8th of April 2010.

A couple of weeks previously, we invited an expert tree surgeon down and he gave an excellent┬áafternoon’s demonstration and practical session in the correct pruning of our fruit trees.

We hope that this attention and the fact that we have cut the surrounding hedges back to allow more light into the area will mean that this year we have a bumper crop of fruit -mainly apples, pears and a plum tree.

We have also cleared back the undergrowth around the trees, allowing us easy access.
