Spring blossom

Okay as promise photos of my spring fruit tree blossom:


Last year I planted very hurriedly an apple and a plum cordon next to each other and lost their tags. I think this is the plum tree:


 I also bought a nectarine mini tree from homebase in the sale- just look at all the lovely blossom:



 This is the blossom on my espaliered pear which was a birthday pressie several years ago:

 and last lastly blossom on my James Grieve tree I planted last year!
I just hope the frost doesn't get them. It would be lovely to enjoy their fruits this year!

What beautiful pictures. I am on frost watch too and run around madly with sheets of fleece if the forecast is bad. Hopefully we're done with the bad spells and all of our new buds and blossoms will be safe - hurrah! x

Oh your blossom looks lovely! I hope it sets fruit and you get loads this year, I'm worried we'll get a late frost before the bees get to ours as well.
