Planning a trifle

Developing Black Currants.  Nikon D7000
30th April 2012

I was not sure if we would get Black Currants this year; the bush was dug up unceremoniously from my sisters garden, left on the patio for a week or two in a bag, and then planted in the garden in between some old tree roots.

The leaves appeared on cue and although there did not seem to be much blossom, there was enough and we now have fruit developing on the bush.

There may only be enough to make a handful, but that will be welcome!

It looks as if it may get tricky later in the year though as the cherry tree is at one end of the garden and the blackcurrants at the other; watch out blackbird, I have my eye on you....
