After weeks of rain and frost, we had our first -not so cold- and sunny Sunday today. Perfect for doing a bit of much needed gardening. Although the thermometer did not go higher than 7 degrees Celsius, it felt much warmer. There was hardly any wind and when sitting on the veranda with my face in the sun, it could have easily been spring!
I had not realised how much I had missed the garden. The peace and quiet, the birdsong. It was a joy being there.
There was a lot of clearing up to do. One of my favourite occupations is to get get rid of decayed leaves and stems. The surface of the soil is revealed once more and with it tiny green shoots and even some flowers, like snowdrops, Hellebore and cyclamen.
There is still a lot of work to be done, but while looking back over my shoulder on my way home, I was happy to see the difference. We did a good job today!
Have you been in the garden lately?
Wishing you a happy new week!
