The clocks went forward last night, to reflect what we are all doing – looking forward to warmer, sunnier days. We were rejoicing at the extra hour of daylight we have been given in the evenings. We made great plans as to how we were going to utilise that first hour of the magical extension to the day, once we were able to drag our weary bodies out of bed much earlier than normal.
However, spring had different ideas and rained on our parade. It has done nothing but rain all day and as I sit here looking out the window trying not to rue the lost opportunities to garden until I can barely see in the fading late evening light, I am choosing to look on the bright side. This is giving the earth a deep moist foundation to enter the hot dry season with and in a few short months I will be grateful for this enforced rest day. So I am choosing not to moan about spring showers, no matter how heavy they are.
Even in soggy times I can’t stay out of the garden and risked pneumonia, or at the very least a bit of a sniffle, because even a wet garden is a beautiful garden and I had to soak it in!
Come again soon – rain makes things grow and keeps a keen gardener busy.
