Early spring cuttings

As promised, I’m opening the gate door of the country garden, hoping
 to strike your dormant spring chords and letting you savour the early
 season loveliness. Sun-kissed afternoons make their appearance
 timidly, inviting the lucky visitor to indulge in the warm caress of
 the soft light and observe nature’s slow but firm march into spring.

 Most plants are still hibernating. Nevertheless, there is a strong 
will for life to take its place again and fill the whole space with 
greenery, colour and happiness. 
I’m really thrilled to follow all these phases of transition and 
transformation in the country garden although I’m not known
 for my patience at all. Being able to cut little bouquets from our
 home grown flowers not only satisfies me but gives me a push to 
think more deliberately about what would be best for next year, 
what we did wrong regarding the placement of the flowers
 and such. Ignorant gardener some years ago...
 You don’t really learn that quickly when it comes to discovering
 the secrets of nature. 

Anyway, here are some happy photos from a sweet afternoon break
 in the company of my husband who shares all my childish excitement 
with this lovely space. Indeed, it’s thanks to him that I’m back to being
 a child again who is learning the rules that govern nature and the
 way to maintain and push forward a piece of land. Raised in this 
place of wonder, this spacious yard, this kitchen garden overflowed
 with citrus and jasmine scents, it’s like rekindling his own playground 
and making m e a part of it.

Orthodox Easter falls on 8 April this year and I feel I’m way behind
 getting ready. So let’s get the things done! 
How about you? 
Has spring knocked on your door yet?

Flowery wishes to all of you
