Unfurling Spring

For this region it's been a very wet winter and Spring: great for the plants and water table, a bit tedious for most sun-loving humans and other animals. I ventured out a couple of days ago during a sunny interval before a day of non-stop deluge, to snap a few plants: early poppy, lilac which is in abundance this year, the fresh new leaves of the almond trees, this year's 'fruits' already showing, incased in pale green velvet.
If the sun comes out for a while, we should be eating cherries within a couple of weeks. I'll take a look in the shed for the cherry stoner, wipe the webs off it and it'll make its once a year appearance.

Oh, and a Mark chocolate cake that I loaded up by accident.
