Fruit blossom arriving at the orchard

I was in the orchard today checking the trees (and the signal on my new phone). Everything is looking good except for the young tree whose roots had been disturbed by a fox. I gave that one a big drink of river water to get its roots used to the new soil I'd put in place.

There was some nice apple blossom today on the trees: 


If memory serves right it is an Egremont Russet. The cherry tree blossom is beginning to fade, but it looks like we'll have a good crop of cherries this year, provided we get some netting on the tree to keep blackbirds and pigeons away.
