Here comes spring

Rain and February. It is hard to separate the two. Today was one of those rare days where they took a break from each other. It was such a treat to be outside in the sun, especially with these crocuses showing off on our patio. It’s still cold, only 6 or 7 degrees celsius, but warm enough for gardening. I spent a couple of hours puttering around outside cleaning up, planting primulas and sowing basil, tomato and lettuce seeds that I’ll grow inside for the next month or two.

It’s a funny time of year right now, half way between winter and spring, but things are growing and that is so satisfying.  Snowdrops are going crazy all over our neighbourhood now and crocuses and daffodils are starting to show, too. Next sunny day I will go for another walk like this one.
