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.
