Looks very bad here in Worcestershire :cry:
Some of you may remember me reporting how early the blossom was out again this year, I wonder if that was part of the problem.

I just went back and looked at my posting for the past two years when I first saw blossom on this bush. 2006 - 29th March, 2007 - 21st February. And yet Worcestershire is chilly at the moment.
