chitting


Spring is springing and the blackbirds are singing late into the increasingly light evenings. My thoughts are turning to the veg patch, where the rhubarb I planted last year is tantalisingly pink and lush, but out of bounds until next year to let it get settled in. These wrinkly little chaps are soaking up all the light they can get and sending their little greeny pink shoots outwards and upwards, ready to turn into delicious new potatoes for supper. Fragrant narcissi are illuminating the garden. The Sarah Raven catalogue is the reading of choice. I love spring.

Hello, Sue! These "simple" reasons for joy are so sweet! They mean that your work in the garden was worth the efforts!
Wish you a lovely spring with lots of smiles!xxx

Dear Sue, like you and Rossichka, I am loving spring's arrival...particular this year's version, since I've recently retired. It's a dream to have each day's hours a buffet from which I can choose.

Gosh, I've never grown potatoes, and would love you to post and update as these chittings develop. Right now, I love the elegant still life composition of your photograph.

Hello there Sue, Greetings from the Antipodes, it's just early Autumn here, and I'm busy planting Tulips, Iris, Freesias and varied Narcissus into weathered pots clothed in mossy green velvet, the days here have a gentle warmth and the soft rays of sunlight filter the garden with great relief after the harsh summer sun, the birds song too changes tone this time of year into a softness that echoes the gentleness of the sun's Autumn rays, I find great solace in nature and my garden after a difficult couple of years in my personal life..so spread your dreams under your feet and tread softly xo Lynn
