Hello Sarah, she says, Spring has arrived!
Hello Joss, indeed it has 🙂 My garden is a mass of yellow and blue just now, about to be joined by the mauve of lilac. Spring seems to have been a long time coming this year, but I think it’s making up for lost time.
Spring’s colours and vibrant life always feel like such a balm for our soul!
After the cold and snowy winter we’ve had here with palette devoid of colors, it is a welcome sight to see the bright and vivid colors of spring emerging – finally!
Yes, “finally” is the word! We’ve not had snow where I live, but endless greyness, rain, and storms: just a remorseless drenching and battering from the southwest. On the rare occasions the wind moved around to the east, I found some energy.
So welcome, I’m sure. 🙂
When I saw Miss Tulip like a red-surprise in the middle of that neatly dug bed, I exclaimed, “Just look at her!” I think I made everyone’s heads turn in the National Trust garden I was visiting at the time. My granddaughter replied, “She’s beautiful and I so-o-o wish I had a dress that colour!”
Lovely, flowers bloom in the …….dirt!
I’m sure there’s some kind of analogy to draw there, or a focus point for a meditation that leads to enlightenment!
an absoslute delight. I love the texture of the ground against this bright spark!!
Yes, I really liked the contrast between the two — bright new life springing out of parched earth.
