Ah spring………….the weather may be crazy all over the place but spring you are definitely here.
The grass is racing away, the days are noticeably longer and daylight saving starts this coming weekend.
It is such a hopeful time of the year, as I walk under pink and white branches laden with blossom in the orchard.
I am dreaming of the fruit I will pick. This is before the reality of summer droughts, Nor’West winds and pecking birds, but for now everything seems possible.
You can palpably feel the energy outside. The first of the season asparagus are recklessly poking their heads up, and the shaggy heads of the Van Sion narcissus are blooming their hearts out in the orchard.
Every time I go and pick some Rosemary it is a buzz with bees covering the blue flowers.
The mint looks like a mini forest of fresh green stalks.
So for today it’s all about the wonders of spring down here at Dry Paddocks I hope elsewhere in the southern hemisphere you are enjoying spring too.
