The sun came out to play today. After hanging the washing on the line, I wandered around the garden. It felt really lovely, if a little alien to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin.
The sunlight, bright and stark illuminated the garden. Spring is definitely in the air and signs of new growth are appearing all around. The ivy weaving its way up the ash tree has sprouted delicate new leaves, small but perfectly formed. The viburnum continues to bud and flower and the thyme has beautiful coloured new growth, like tiny red flowers.
The last picture is of an enormous beetroot. It reminded me of the story of The Enormous Turnip. I hope this beetroot doesn't need to be pulled and pulled and pulled like the enormous turnip.
So are you enjoying the new season and the welcome sunshine?
