Tree blossom at Ecoworks

Nic Cairns sent in some fine photos of trees in blossom, taken at Ecoworks Community Garden…..

The blossom shown is all on cultivated trees (Cherry, Apple and Plum) rather than natives – but such flowers are still of great value for pollinating insects such as bees and hoverflies, and a flowering fruit tree can be a worthwhile contribution to any wildlife garden.  Thanks to Nic for the photos.
