Nature is right on my doorstep. I do not have to walk far on my daily trip outside to feel good. Everything is developing fast with the Spring weather. It is the plum trees that are the first to blossom in the community orchard at Charlton Down. The apple trees are not far behind and will be next to bloom, and then the pears. Most of the trees were originally planted by or for a particular person and there is a marker with their name, the date, and the variety of fruit at the base of each tree.
