We are enjoying a drizzly weekend. The cherry blossoms are beginning to rain down until there are pink carpets under all the neighbourhood trees.
Many houses have colourful primulas dotting their front gardens. The happy tones of yellow, violet, pinks and white draw my eye and remind me of upcoming Easter celebrations.
My rose bush is sending out tiny shoots to show where all the flowers will be in a few months.
I am impressed by the chives that are growing. My salads are reaping the benefit of that onion flavour.
The unfortunate side to all the spring rain, is our soggy and spongy backyard. We are unable to cut the grass. The walk to my compost bin is a very damp one indeed.
I am happy with the spring rain. All the forest around us needs this precipitation. So, the the foreseeable weeks, I will see the blessing of Spring rains.
