The cherry tree is full of flowers and looks so pretty. It’s 25 years old and the last couple years it hasn’t had many cherries. And there is a small split in the trunk. I’m afraid by another year or two it might have to be taken down. I will miss that, even if it doesn’t get cherries on.
Sir Albert is still sitting in his spot guarding the garden, very happy not to have to wear his stocking hat any more.
I’m gearing up the garden. I have a lot of pepper and tomato seedlings started in my little hoop house. Yesterday I got tomato row all ready; pulled out lots of shallow weeds and put up the trellises, marking where tomatoes will be planted with pieces of brick.
Onions are up along the edge of that. Peas are up 1″ at the base of pergola poles. The pergola needed some repairs so yesterday I got the ladder out and added some new top poles of bamboo. And hung up a set of Tibetan prayer flags, cos the ones from last year were ragged. Hey, gardeners need all the help they can get!
Let the games begin!
