Spring has Sprung

Parts of the UK are flooded, areas of Europe are receiving record snow dumps.  Here in Cornwall we haven’t yet seen a day without rain, in three weeks, though there has been some sunshine too.  In general, it has been a warmer and wetter winter than usual, which has confused the plants and they are sending forth buds and flowers. We hope they’re not in for a shock.
Having said that, we were out for a walk one day and met an elderly trio who stopped to congratulate us on seeing and appreciating the beauty of the bare trees which were being submitted to a barrage of shutter clicks.  Someone mentioned the early start to spring and one of the elderly gentlemen jumped in to say it was all a load of rubbish.  We have placed labels and dates on our seasons, but Mother Earth is under no obligation to follow our carefully designed plans for planting, harvesting, holidays or whatever.  Something to think about, as we enjoy the flowers.

  1. If the news items here in NZ are anything to go by then to see colour in these flowers would be a lift in spirits.

  2. To the glory of spring and all that it heralds.

  3. Yes the labels and dates drive some people crazy. Here is NZ the weather is always variable, always has been . It is what it is. The trick is making the most of whatever it is.

  4. This is such an uplifing image, regardless of the summery weather outside here at the moment. It bounces out of the screen and just makes me smile every time I look at it. Love the sentiment about the weather, if we got over that we’d all enjoy each day a lot more!
