April is one of our favourite times of year here at Alton Albany Farm, as winter slinks away, the skies clear to a deep blue and little green tips become leaves on the trees.
Spring really seems to take hold when our daffodils – or ‘lilies’ as they are called locally – are in full bloom. We seem to hold to this vibrant moment for longer than other areas of the UK and we also seem to keep our daffodils longer !
These pictures below were captured just this morning (16th April).
It’s also a time to get some outside jobs completed including a much needed new garden gate. Alasdair made this rustic new addition from branches of our Philadelphus tree in the orchard that he pruned last year after it had flowered.
