Even if we are supposed to have a relatively quiet time
in the garden,early spring signs are evident here and there
and cheer up the whole landscape and our souls as well.
After an unusually mild winter we have the feeling that
spring has shown up unexpectedly early this year.
Last Sunday was one of those warm winter days and the
bright sun, shining from every angle, lit up the whole
scene of our country garden like a glowing postcard.
Spring’s fragrances, birds chirping, increasing daylight,
got us freshly excited although winter is still
firmly in control!
So, blooming in the garden has come ahead of schedule
and given me the joy to pick up the first spring bunch.
Hyacinths, calendulas and a little jasmine were quite
enough to make me smile and play with my camera.
Dawdling in the lush green estate I felt that I’m not
the same person I was once … the view I take at life and
nature is different now…I stop by where I didn’t use to
but perhaps I’ll share it with you another time.
This is halvah, a
Middle East dessert served with
coffee or tea, perfumed with citron zest and leaves.
It is my treat before saying good bye!
