From the garden...

Spring Fever

The first crocus of Spring! After all the snow and rain and weather of late winter it is a sudden joyful shock to see the resilient bulbs of spring opening faithfully to the promise of sunshine.

I caught this spot of violet crocus poking through the winter debris in my front garden on the weekend – it inspired a search for glimpses of spring to tide me over until the real thing comes to life all around us!

We pulled the winter greens and holly out of the planters and stuck in pussy willow and forsythia instead.

The first bee of the season – just basking in the sun to warm up like the rest of us…

” I thank you god for this most amazing day; for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky: and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes.” ee Cummings

“It’s spring fever… You don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so. ” (Mark Twain)
