There will be fruit

Over the last 2 weeks or so the fruit bushes have been showing their minute flowers to the outside world and I noticed this evening that the bumble bees were doing the rounds.
The gooseberries are covered in tiny, delicate blooms and if the frosts hold off then it looks like we should get a decent crop (dare I say it maybe even a glut? I hope so).
The reliable blackcurrants are putting on a good show too.
The redcurrant that I moved out from underneath the Bramley apple is thriving and has lots of tiny trusses of flowers.
And the most exciting of them all is that the cordon apples have hints of blossom.
