Spring...is that you?
It is impossible to believe, yet everyday I find myself getting closer to believing. A certain amount of me is skeptical, the rest of me is getting really close to peeling the plastic off our windows and cracking them open. I have been drying laundry on the line all this week, woolens are being washed and put away slowly, I am fighting the urge to start the spring clean. Could it be true...is spring actually on our doorstep? Or are we being lulled into a false sense of security only to be ambushed by another dose of winter? Time will tell.
It is a reassuring thing to mark the path of the sun through the house...early morning in the living room, late day in the kitchen. This is the same path I will walk everyday as I move little seedlings in time with the sun (we have no south facing windows that do the job). Hazel and I have planned our garden based on her favorite book at the moment called "The Gigantic Turnip" by Aleksei Tolstoy...although turnips are not a veggie of choice for her, so we will stick to the others; potatoes, beans, peas and carrots.
I do so love the change of seasons.
Happy weekend everyone.
