Spring Is On It's Way

Sunday, August 03, 2008

Maybe I'm getting a little hopeful but the signs of spring are around me this week. This is what greeted me at the kitchen window on Friday morning.

I love borrowed gardens. The neighbor's plum tree hangs over the fence at our kitchen window. From here I can see the other plums trees and a lone feijoa.

I've also been watching our magnolia closely. I'm sure it was flowering earlier last year. Aa it was our first winter in the house, we had no idea what colour it was going to be. I have fond memories of sitting in bed, nursing little e, and watching the spidery purple blossoms. I spent so much time inside, that at times, the flowers on this tree were my only real reminder that the seasons were changing.

  1. Hope you are right. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo over this rain and winter gloom. Might have to go check my garden for signs of spring too!

  2. SNAP, I was going to post some photographs of blossom, magnolia buds and lambs... but guess what...I have lost my camera!!!!!!!!I'm lost without my camera :(

  3. You are so right. I was out in my rather winter depressed garden noticing the bulbs showing and the day sunny and with a slight breeze I was in a tee shirt!! Just the fact that i was in the garden made it feel like it was spring to me and now I am dreaming of pay day and buying some plants to cover the inevitable holes and dead plants.
    I would have posted but my digital camera has no batteries. (another pay day must !!)


Your comments make my day. I would love to hear from you.
