Musings on Spring

I am feeling that the season is ‘early’ this year. I mean that, for some reason, the soil seems warm enough to plant/sow into now.  Looking back at my sowing journals for the past four years I’ve done nothing until the end of March/beginning of April…  but this year feels different.

I am going to go with my intuition and will direct sow some peas and radish and rocket and maybe some spinach. And I’ll get some trays filled with seed compost and put in the tomatoes and tomatillos.

This could all be a huge mistake!

It feels like Spring today…

Narcissus ‘Jetfire’:

Narcissus ‘Tete a Tete’ and unknown Snowdrop variety:

Crocus ‘Pickwick’:

Daphne odora aureomarginata: The Breton drizzle and low cloud that has been dampening both my spirits and the garden, finally stopped. The storms and high winds of the other day are almost forgotten and Spring flowers take centre stage. And today has been a beautiful  day.  Lots done in the garden. All fine in my world!
