Blossom in waiting

      We were walking through an orchard with the two Jack Russells and for reasons better known to ourselves we started examining the tips of the Grenadier apple tree branches. Closer examination revealed that the blossom is there, all budded up and ready to go, given the right weather conditions. That'll cheer the landscape up a little when all those groves of apple trees burst into blossom.
      Did we say a walk with Minnow and Barney? Once we get into an orchard it becomes more of a rummage with the two terriers, we slow to a crawl and they root around, noses getting stuck into anything and everything, for ages.
      That's the way it is in terrier world.
