Jostaberry flowers

Everything is going wild in the garden. Here are some flowers of the jostaberry.
The jostaberry is a cross between a blackcurrant and gooseberry. The berries are big and black,  with a lovely taste. The plant is really hardy and easy to grow. I am already looking forward to picking some berries in summer.

We grow these too but unfortunately the wood pigeons like them

We throw nets over ours, otherwise the birds would eat them, too.
Have you tasted them at all? :)

Yes the woodpigeon leaves some for us.
