I realise it’s only March (well, April nearly) but my Blackcurrant bushes and Red and White currant bushes are flowering – big time! The flowers are so teeny-tiny that I only noticed them this evening when I was making my 6pm sweep of the garden.
The Blackcurrant flowers (top) are all hairy and cute, packed tightly inside every leaf nook. Whereas the White currants (above) are yellow and dangling down, ready to form the drooping sprigs that will be picked wholesale come summer.
This is so exciting! It means that there ‘will’ be fruit. Oh I am glad.
