I've been watching the lovely signs of an approaching Australian Spring in my garden..
and I have to say - I can hardly wait for it's arrival this year!
Winter still seems to want to stubbornly linger on for a while in our part of the country,
and in fact rallied a blast of cold air and more light snow on our mountain this week.
The Woodman is very happy to see the lettuces and silverbeets coming on.
He is really hoping his Dutch carrots are" doing their thing" and will be sweet to eat pretty soon!
Even the peas which sprung up unannounced from the pea-straw mulch are doing a happy dance today :-)
Soon the blossoms will appear and will be dancing their duets with the bees..
all to the tune of balmy breezes and cheery sparrowsong.
I love the "in-between-seasons" of Spring and Autumn!
Watching the cycle of the year turn in all it's glorious colours and perfumes
invigorates my soul and gives me so much joy.
Perhaps by this time next week the Woodman's axe may finally stop to rest..
and the watering-can and hose take up the baton in it's stead :-)
And I will be right here smiling on the sidelines - eagerly cheering them on, lol!
I'm joining Dayle to give thanks for the simple pleasures of the seasons and newly grown life.
