To my mind, there’s no sight more beautiful than blossom set against a blue sky, and nothing more pleasurable than lying under a blossom-laden tree.

So I couldn’t wait to see 23,000 fruit trees – apple, plum, cherry, quince and cobnuts – in bloom during the blossom weekend at Brogdale Farm, home to the National Fruit Collection.

We had to wait a while for the blue skies, as hail and rain were very much on the agenda. But finally they appeared, setting off the cherry and plum blossom perfectly. AboveĀ  is a ‘Victory’ plum.
