Awakening

The little garden is overgrown with grass and wildflowers, but I know it will all dry up too soon, now that the rains are nearly over.
The pomegranate is already sprouting fresh new leaves.

So is one of the grape vines. In a couple of months, there will be grapes to harvest and eat, and if we have a rich bounty, perhaps we'll try our hand at making wine. The pear is presenting its first blossoms, too.

Spring is well under way.

Beautiful! Can't wait for that to happen here. We're getting close... our early spring bulbs are coming up and we see little tufts of green grass poking through the patches of land where the snow has melted away. :0)

Oh the joy of having a pomegranate tree! They are as beautiful as rubies and taste so divine... I long to live in a country where they grow!

Best wishes for a productive little harvest this year :)

your sky is such a deep rich shade of blue! our sky never gets that color.. in fact today it is almost a slate-y sort of shade, even though this is a beautiful day (for us;))

♥happy spring♥

The first day of Spring is tomorrow, but you wouldn't know it here :-P We actually got snow this past week, very uncharacteristic. I hope that our local farmers don't suffer too much from an unusually cold spring for the SECOND year in a row!

Your garden looks lovely. I can't wait until we have a home with a yard. Of course, I likely will have to wait quite a few years...ah well :)

The beginning of Spring is a favorite time of year for me. I just marvel at the awesomeness of God as I watch the trees start to bud and the flowers start to grow and bloom.

Sadly you don't see much of srping in London. I've planted a little terrace potted garden, but it's not the same. I used to have a beautiful coach ride to school past fields of lambs and mile after mile of cherryblossom...I'm glad I soaked it in well, those memories are going to have to last me a long time.

Ah, I love that time of year!
I've got fresh new leaves on my baby blueberry bush, and I also planted some wildflowers by the window:)
