Winter to Spring in 2 days

I don’t know how the plants survived at all!  On Tuesday and Thursday everything was buried under  a couple of inches of snow, then Friday, Saturday and Sunday were wonderful, spring days.  Blue sky, real warmth in the sun, no wind just perfect

weather to get on with pruning the olives and weeding.

I’ve decided to take a photo inventary of what’s flowering in the garden on the 2nd weekend of the month, if you click on the photo on the right  you can see them all.   The Apricot and plum were in flower, does that mean there will be no fruit this year with the cold weather last week?  See post for walk at Norchia for just how different the weather was on Sunday.
