One of our vines that we planted last year is covered in small clusters of flowers, quite

surprised really. One problem we might have is all our apples, pears and plums in our

orchard seem to be still dormant or I suspect they may have all been killed by canker cry

You mean that there has been a TV production of Cold Comfort Farm?  I have the book and read it at least every two years.  I keep meaning to buy more of her work but just never remember to do so.

I'll try that again!
