    I have been itching to get out into the garden and have a good old tidy up. And the beautifully cold but sunny weather this weekend, gave me the opportunity to don my ancient gardening coat and┬ásneak out for an hour. Before I knew it I was happily hacking away at our enormous phormium (that just seems to get bigger and bigger), clearing beds of ancient leaves, trimming back grasses and pulling up the skeletons of last year’s tomatoes. The garden now looks ready for the year to come…

    Funnily enough everyone I chatted to this weekend, also had similar ideas. My friend Karen is planning a new look to her cottage front garden; Janine is yearning for bright orange cannas in her borders; Louisa is hankering after an outdoor sofa for her deck area.

    With signs in the night sky that Spring is moving into the Northern Hemisphere and the birds starting to sing in the morning, I sense a little bit of Spring fever entering our veins.

    Ooohh how exciting!

      I am surprised you were able to work in your garden. We have two feet of snow on the ground and it is snowing right now.

      I managed it a bit at the weekend and fought a losing battle with the leaves…

      Dear Rhoda,

      I wish you knew Italian… I have just written a similar post about Spring Fever in my blog ! That’s incredible, we live in different countries but have had the same feeling about “Spring in the air”!!

      Like you I was desperate to get into my garden. The sun came out at the weekend and the birds were singing (hurrah!) In total I spent a blissful 6 hours in the fresh air having a little ‘potter’ helped (?) by the cats. It is now snowing like crazy again. Roll on Spring!!
