The currant bushes are in full bloom & loving the warmer weather & sunshine. I wish I had mason bees this year, but there are lots of other insects out there pollinating things for me.

Why are the red currant blossoms so much smaller & unassuming than the black currant blossoms?
I prefer the black currant fruit over the red currants but the black currants are notoriously more difficult to get to produce any sizeable crop, whereas the red currants are profuse...
Mother Nature has a sense of humour!

Looks like a great year for berries indeed!
