It’s been a bitterly cold winter this year here. Although still cold in the mornings and evenings, daylight hours are lengthening. The sun shines in a bright blue sky.
Through our front window I watch the birds chase each other in a frenzy of spring romance.
In the garden spring is bursting as the first of the spring bulbs shyly poke their heads up to catch the sunlight. I wish you could smell this narcissus. The aroma is exquisite.
The garden is coming to life. Soon it will be a riot of colours and new green growth.
It feels good to open windows and let the fresh air indoors. Indoors where to my utter delight, I have managed to nurture my first ever orchid to bloom!
The window sills proudly play host to these two cyclamen. They love their spots in the sunlight. Somehow, I have learnt how to get the best from them.
Watch the magic of nature at work as these flowers
grow and bloom before your eyes.
