Thank you all for your kind comments on my last few posts. I wish I could thank you all in person, but it's difficult to find time, with the gardening season in full swing.
The weather was fine today, with blue skies, fluffy white clouds and only a few specks of rain in the morning. I fetched my bicycle from the shed, and drove to the outskirts of town where my allotment garden is. For those of you who are new to my blog, my garden is situated between two highways and the airport. The bicycle ride is lovely, through a park and across a meadow with wild flowers.
I am always excited to see my garden. Will the tulips be in bloom and the bluebells....? I couldn't believe my eyes. It was like an explosion of flowers had taken place. The first tulips are in bloom, so are the bluebells, wood hyacinths, nettles, forget-me-nots and the first geraniums. Although I can see that the grass and the weeds (yuk) have grown enormously too, I am happy with this small piece of nature, that gives me so much joy.
Next weekend my two youngest daughters and I leave for the UK. We rented a cottage in East Sussex, and are much looking forward to it. I won't be able to post, so have a lovely two weeks!
