Here it is, three weeks into to spring and I've hardly posted at all. That is not to say that things haven't been happening.
The fragrance was divine and the bees were loving it.
The weather has been all over the place, as it typically is at this time of year. We have had glorious days with the temperature up to the low 20s C, only to then have cold fronts come through and it plummet to not even reaching double digits and a dusting of snow on the hills in the district.
The winter display on our little kitchen shelf has been put away.
Our weeping cherry tree, which we have now had for two years, put on a nice show, as did the ring of mixed daffodils around its base.
Back in autumn we visited Canowindra and I bought a packet of white daffodil bulbs. They are blooming beautifully, with two blooms on each stem, which is unusual.
We have planted our tomato seedlings in pots and they are getting a bit of a start in the green house. The snow peas are growing nicely, but only three ordinary pea seeds germinated, so they have been replanted and are now just starting to poke their heads through the surface.
The cherry tree blossoms have just about finished now, just in time for the crab apple to put on its show.
What we have really enjoyed is mornings that are warm enough to eat our breakfasts out on the back verandah, which receives lovely morning sun.
In normal times we always say we are not very good at staying home, but it really has been nice to be at home at this time of year.
We have had a few walks, when the weather has been nice, but not as many as we should do. Living on the edge of town, we can wander through suburbia, or we can head up the hill behind our house and be in among the paddocks.
It's hard to believe that there are suburbs just down behind the first hill.
Well that's enough for today. I'll share more of what we have been up to shortly.
