Three out of the four raised beds out back, had spring planting put in them to help maintain the soil over winter. They are now in bloom. In the middle of each bed is their compost bin, all of which are awake and in action:
Bed 1 and a vegetable bed:
The front arch has in bloom (here on the back of the arch) a russet apple and pink pear:
We also have a back arch with two different plums - Victoria and Czar on one side and a quince on the other.
In the fruit cage are one blackcurrant, one bramble, two blueberries, two gooseberries and two new dwarf raspberries. The blueberries are slowly dying as we don't have the correct soil but have given us fruit for quite a few years. I think possibly this year, I may need to replace them.
