In my backyard I shall need to have someone shovel some of the snow away from the house to avoid basement flooding once the melt comes. I am not allowed lifting of heavy stuff yet because the retina is still healing. I just tried a bit to see the depth of the situation and there's a fair bit of the white stuff right up to the patio door.
To get to the furniture will be quite a dig.
The pansies, daffodils and crocus are deeply buried in the back by the fence. My two lovely rose bushes in the front garden are hidden near that lamp that is situated on a small post barely peeping out.
Indoors it's it's quite cosy and the plants are cheerfully and elegantly blooming but it just does not feel right. Spring is not filling our hearts with all it's joys yet.
Outdoors it was the very opposite last year as everything began early.
Being blessed I decided to use our means to enjoy more travelling.
We leave in a few days heading south to be able to enjoy some warmer outdoor living. Buddy is excited and happy that I have recovered well enough to take on this journey with the eye surgeon's permission to fly. Hubby is joining us this time. He really wants a break before he'll be bogged down with this year's client's tax returns. We hope to enjoy more of the bright red blooms that grow outdoors all around and are liberally used to decorate.
And when we get back hopefully a warmer springlike weather will have commenced so we can enjoy our local outdoor gardens again.
Right now the birds have not yet appeared. Usually they would be busy chirping early in the morning. Instead it remains eerily quiet.
Across the big pond my daughters daffodils are blooming in her Bromley area garden. Some type of palm tree that can survive outdoors in her London suburb has been replanted to another spot and she is grilling in her shorts and Tees..
How is your spring shaping up?
