The Promise

~
It's here, I can feel it for sure.
~
The last few days have lightened and softened, and Spring has thrown off her cape. She gives us the promise of warmer days, the promise of lighter nights. With the Spring Equinox comes the meeting of equal length of darkness and light and it can only get better.
~
As the days stretch out before us we can achieve so much, the soil lightens and relaxes and becomes the hospitable place for so much. Us gardeners, smallholders, growers and flower lovers are springing into action, making good use of the light, warmth, and the drying out of the heavy winter ground. Nurturing our seedlings ready to give them the best possible start.
~
It really is a promise, a promise of things to come and I for one love it.

  5. I'm not sure I was 'springing into action' yesterday so much as avoiding work, but it's kind of nice that my first day back on the plot was the first day of spring, and you're right - there is a definite feel in the air. The birds are singing. It is warm. Oooh lovely.

    As for monster parsnip - don't know if he is edible yet. Maybe I should try and preserve him for posterity!

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
