Trees !

This is a beautiful picture I took in the White Mountains, New Hampshire when we were visiting USAShoestring. There are trees as far as the eye can see. There are lots of trees around our house here too. At the moment nearly all of the them are dormant but it is fun to see that one or two have the faintest beginnings of blossom and the hazel catkins are now out all down the roads nearby.

We have several fruit trees in the garden and I am so thankful for them. In a good year, the apple trees give more fruit than we can handle and the new, young, plum tree gave the first harvery of 6 plums last year. So, I am hopeful of more plums next year.

We have planted a pear tree too, but I think that it will take so long to mature that Master Shoestring will be an adult before we see any fruit from that. MrShoestring has planted a whole lot of trees along the front fence so that eventually they will form the border to the garden rather than the enormous laurel hedge, which needs cutting annually.

We both love trees and really miss them if we travel somewhere that has only a few, the Orkney and Shetland Isles.
