Spring has sprung

Saturday afternoon, shirtsleeves and sandals weather for cycling to Waitrose amongst drifts of sakura petals from trees near the road-side.

Sunday, plenty of gardening, digging the bit of the side bed which had lain fallow since exterminating the Japanese anemone, and starting to drag things out of the shed and garage into the new greenhouse (now with the panel that exploded in the first warm sun replaced). Plum blossom just starting to burst its buds.

Today, cycling to work, and again, sakura petals at the school. Feeling creaky from the digging yesterday, and a head wind on the way home so I pushed a couple of bits. Plum blossom now properly opening.
