Springy

I may be speaking too soon, but today I have noticed some signs of spring in the garden:

Not to mention on the washing line:

Washing on the line - sunshine and blue sky

And in the fields:

In addition, Max has been groomed  and clipped for the warmer weather:

Sam, on the other hand is not impressed:

Now, I know there are dull days to come, but I do feel so much more positive at this time of year compared to during the dark and wet days of winter.

Tomorrow I will plant seeds! Now there’s nothing more optimistic than that.

  1. Today I watched a blackbird building her nest by the back door. The frogs are flirting with each other in the pond. The honeysuckle leaves are in bud. Spring is springing. Lovely photos.

  2. Your garden looks good! I can’t wait to start growing mine… ^_^ Rhubarb is one of the things I can’t wait to grow. I miss having it. It’s not popular around here, so the stores don’t stock it.

  3. Don’t those first signs of spring just make your heart sing! Standing in the warmth of the sun by the back door just because you can – I often find myself musing on the fact that if I stand still enough and inwardly quiet enough I will hear the plants growing 🙂

    For me, yesterday I turned my heating on – a little too early for my liking! And while brushing Orlando realised he has put on a very thick undercoat in the past few days – another ‘not good’ sign for a mild winter……

    Max is looking rather cute and handsome!

    Happy planting – enjoy those uplifting rays! xoxo

  4. Oh, lovely rhubarb, another thing to miss when living in the tropics… The temperatures are still in the 25C+ range day and night, but we’re having gentle rains from time to time instead of the usual downpour. Soon the ground will be soft enough and the weather mild enough to start thinking about installing Chookonia and raised vegie beds… Can’t wait!

  7. Yes, despite how ‘evolved’ and sophisticated we humans are, we’re still very much affected by the seasons 🙂

  8. We certainly are affected by the world around us, I noticed just yesterday at the surgery that the miniature daffodils I planted in the pots are starting to flower and the shrubs are gently budding. I skipped off to lunch with a spring in my step knowing that the earth is unfolding once again to reveal a mass of green glory.

  10. It’s amazing how a little spring sunshine and the first sign of green in the vegetable garden can lift the heart. Your purple sprouting looks glorious – ours was destroyed by pigeons and I shall miss it this spring.

  11. No sign of my rhubarb or comfrey yet (very shaded garden!), but the birds are out in force- robins are following my chooks around as they dig and scratch and there’s a nuthatch nesting in one of our trees!

  12. Look at all that green! Okay, so if you have all that growth, it’s only a matter of time until we get it, right? I am SO ready!

  13. That’s what keeps us gardeners optimistic, the “knowing” that what we plant might just eventuate in new life. How magnificent! I won’t have time to get depressed this rainy/cold season, we are FAR too busy to even notice! I am just about to finish the baby snuggle and hat that I am making a friends baby and when I do, I will be starting on your special square/s. Haven’t worked out if it is going to be one or two yet but I am most certain of the first one 🙂

  14. Oh your lovely plants that have come back or wintered over! It does feel so good to get seeds in. I hope to get to that this weekend. If it doesn’t rain.
