Pics 23rd April

Actually this is from a few days earlier - the fruit bushes seem to be doing better this year...

...and the first Asparagus spears of the season will be picked real soon.

This is one of the purple variety Phil gave us last year - the new bed is springing into life and it will be very tempting to pluck one or two spears prematurely from the nurturing soil in order to assess their flavour. Ought to leave it 'til next year really tho'...

Once again the fruit bushes fetchingly backlit in the spring sunshine :-)

Love the asparagus pictures! There's something thrilling about new growth emerging from the soil.

My mother in law just had pickeled Asparagus last night. What a coincidence. I personally dont like to eat it but I love to watch anything grow.
