As usual, Winter got us.
We all got excited about the bulbs popping up, and we took off a layer or two of clothing on those sunny days where we could bask in the actual warmth of the sun, an unusual feeling after our hibernation, but a feeling which just feels so right.
And then, all of a sudden, Winter reminded us that it is indeed still winter, and chilly winds quickly knocked the heads of my tiny iris reticulata and showed them who’s boss. I came inside again - I’m wondering if anyone has been a bit hardier than me? It’s one of those tests that are given to garden-lovers, checking that we are really dedicated and reminding us to be flexible. Reminding us that nothing is for certain, but that whenever the reward comes, we should be grateful for it, for it might be taken away from us again in the blink of an eye. The magnolia blooms, the cherry blossom - let’s enjoy it while we can.
So, what is the news, you’re probably wondering…..?
