Spring has sprung
While the mornings are still cool enough to warrant a coat, by the afternoon temperatures have risen to a point where you forget it, leaving it on the office coat stand to be cursed about the next morning. Recent rain has given the plants something to feed on and this week is warm and sunny enough to enable washing to be line dried.
With this perfect growing weather avenues of blossom trees have broken out, the scent of one stand just up the road from my office is incredibly heady and they are buzzing with bees. The willows behind the lake have taken on the soft green fuzz of new leaves and bare branches everywhere have taken on the reddish hue that shows the sap is flowing and greenery is about to appear.
In my garden the daffodils are putting on a gorgeous show. The fancy doubles stand above minis and there is one especially lovely white and yellow one that guards over all the rest. They catch the sun from morning to afternoon and just glow. It really is a beautiful time of year.
