Have I mentioned that I’m not a winter person? I’m sure I have, a time or twenty. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re all thinking – that we have no real winter here. However, short days, lack of sunshine, and rain make me want to crawl under a blanket and sleep until it’s spring again.
So you can imagine how happy I am when it’s sunny and warm and all my favorite flowers are out.
Beautiful white cyclamens – we need to decide where to plant them so that they can bloom again next year.
More cyclamens, of a smaller, wild variety. They smell delightful.
Pink geranium, growing by the day and quite happy in its new home.
Look at that big stalk growing out of our aloe plant. You can also see a tomato bush or two in the background. And yes, the weeds are winning the race against us, because they, unlike us, didn’t mind being out in the rain these past few days!
I’m wishing happy spring to you all. My mind already transports me to the season beyond Pesach cleaning, to the joys of long afternoons, iced lemonade, hammocks and crickets.
