Last Wednesday on the plot - the blossoming plum tree looking surprised to be surrounded by snow:
The temperature was 2 degrees - compared with 22 the previous week. Fortunately the snow didn't last long and I was able to get the new potatoes in on the traditional planting day of good friday. Since then we've had some useful rain and the climate is at least back in line with the calender. Sunshine and showers forecast for the week ahead.
