Springburst

 

The first spring bulbs have flowered.

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.

  1. As your winter turns to spring, down here we have our first semi coldf ront at the end of next week. 65 Fahrenheit overnight. For Lusitania, that’s pretty good. I’ll take it! Love the seasons change. It’s the absolute best!
