Promises of Spring

The photographs included  in this post and the next were taken in my garden four days ago (4 March) and provide a colourful prelude to the season ahead.

In Spring, the orchards of Ibiza are carpeted with wild flowers.

‘Oh to be in England now that April’s there …’

Yesterday was a warm, sunny day   –   we have had several recently.  The flowers responded appropriately.  It was a joy to be in England now that April’s here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even the fish in the pond basked in the sunshine!

A confusion of rosemary and forsythia

One of the great joys in my garden at this time is seeing the rosemary and forsythia in bloom next to each other.  I don’t find the individual flowers of either shrub particularly exciting but the combinations of colour and shape are stunning and uplifting.

Riot on the border!

Yes, there truly is a riot  –  a riot of colour!  The bright sunshine of the past few days has encouraged an enthusiastic response from the spring flowers in the border.

Spring! Was that it?

We will remember 5 March.  The sun shone brightly throughout the day and the temperature rocketed to a giddy 15°C.  Had Spring sprung?  Had the new season begun a little prematurely?  Nature seemed to think so.

In the field across the lane the first lambs of the year appeared.

Ewe and three lambs

Some basked lazily in the sunshine.

Another shared a meal with two friends.

In the garden there seemed to be an explosion of colour.

But, as I write, it is now 6 March.  Today is cold and dull with rain threatening.  The crocuses have refused to open.  Normal service has been resumed!

Was that it?  Was that Spring?
