 We had waited so long for it. The dreary, dismal days seemed to suddenly evaporate and we awoke one morning to the cheerfulness of a spring day.

THE SUN WAS SHINING!

What a difference it made to the hours that followed. The sewing tools were downed and quickly replaced by the gardening tools. Work feverishly began to repair all the ravages of the endlessly cold winter months. The newly acquired greenhouse rapidly came into its own as planted seeds began to sprout and take over during the next few weeks. A wonderful sight —–flowers and food for the coming months! And all because the sun shone

Paths were newly formed and old ones cleared of tenacious weeds. Flower beds were dug over, tidied and in many cases replanted. Shrubs and fruit trees had a trim. Vegetable beds were prepared and purple sprouting broccoli, curly kale and spinach continued to provide us with a rich harvest. Wonderful, worth all the effort of the previous year.

Pictures speak louder than a thousand words so please enjoy these.
