After a long break for various reasons that I am not going to bore you with I'm back with some unfinished business. I had a number of photos to illustrate the late spring in this area but I will use two to put the matter to rest. Two photos show one of our favourite trees - an elderly laburnum which always puts on a great display. But as the pictures show this year was a disaster. With the late the late spring it would probably have survived but late frosts put paid to the flowers. Flower strings formed but with exception of about a dozen all perished.
