Spring is right in our faces. The spring issue of Playground Magazine (the magazine I publish) is done. Finished. I’ve been chained to the phone and computer all week, but have managed to escape outside with the dog several times and grab cups of coffee sitting in the sun. I really need the Vitamin D after the winter. I’ve noticed how the ground is drying out quickly and the pine cones on the ground are opening up again. I’m still in my wellies and it’s a way until I can exchange them for sandals, but I’m optimistic. I live in a valley and we have certainly seen some water this winter and ankle deep mud.
I’ve found some blossom along the footpath. We’re generally a week or two behind everyone else down here, being in a frost pocket, although there’ve only been a handful of frosts this winter. I’m going to start working in the garden this weekend and Mr Smith will be having several conflagrations; there are potential bonfires piled high with debris from the winter storms ready to burn. I may even dig over the vegetable patch.
Welcome back from Tanzania, Annie. I enjoyed following your, Penny’s and Tanya’s exploits and thanks for the postcard.
I’m joining up a day late to How Does Your Garden Grow? A belated Happy Birthday to you too!
