What a wonder spring is. Everything fresh and new; fresh green leaves, bright flowers by the bucket load; birds and bees excited over the flowers, all enough to put a spring in my step and a new vigour into my garden plans.
However over the weekend I had plans to do some spring cleaning in the house, fold washing, write a blog, and prepare a room for visitors. On Saturday I arose at 6 and was out in the garden by 6.30 before the forecast rain set in and I had to go inside. Well past lunch time and no rain…. I was tired and thought I had better eat. I ate and returned to the garden before the rain set in. At 4.30pm I was so exhausted from getting those jobs done I came in and collapsed on the sofa and then had an early night. The rain never came and the inside jobs didn’t get done. I am doing them today.
But while I was outside in the garden the wonders of spring were an inspiration and delight. Here is what delighted me in my garden. I hope you had plenty in yours to delight you too.
