Spring is sprung, the giant thornless blackberry has broken into leaf and the redcurrants aren't far behind. The other various berries are all showing green tips, but the baby trees are holding their buds tight.

This is a plant in the second house with a beautiful scent. You can click on the picture to enlarge it, any identification would be welcome. It has a slightly lemony scent. These are the flowers :

And this is the bush, showing size and growth habit :

The paddock trees are in full flower, if this is a fruit tree there are going to be some livestock sweating on the windfalls come autumn !

If you can tell what it is from the photos below I'd love to know. The leaves :

The blossoms :

Either way the bees are thrilled.


  1. Ooh, it's a fruit tree of some sort I'm pretty sure, but that's as far as I can get. What a pretty place!

    Hey there, all looking fab! I reckon the little flowering shrub is a type of daphne, pretty hardy plant, All the stock (oops pets!!) are looking good. Seeya

  3. Daphne it is, and we think the tree is a plum :-)
