Spring is definitely here, with warmer, sunny days and frequent rain spells, that prepare Nature for a gorgeous, blooming season ahead! I intend to find beauty in the rain, and this looks like a good point to start with. Also, rain cleans the air, quenches the thirsty meadows and trees, and at night, cuddles us with her soft lullaby.
And thanks to all the rain of the last week, the pink Hyacinths I have planted last October with my Kim (waggling and sniffing around) have grown! They're such a promise of the coming good...
|This lonely teapot without lid was abandoned at the thrift shop. Isn't it perfect as bulb container?|
I have also planted tulips in this zinc bucket. We used to be surrounded by hundreds of them in our old garden, and I always love having them around with their happy faces.
|You may remember the plant label I made last year.|
Garden soil and paint on my nails and hands... pure bliss!
|My tree peonies are starting to get leaves...|
|Rosemary in bloom.|
|Hellebores in bloom! Love them.|
And the Phalaenopsis orchids indoors are blooming too! Not as profusely as last year though, as I forgot to fertilize them last autumn. I have already mentioned I usually set my orchids into a hydroculture pot (in this case, an antique chamber pot).
Have you spotted the first signs of Spring yet? (to my dear readers Down Under I should ask- Autumn?).
