Hello Faisal,It is clear to us through your writing and your thoughts that you feel very close to Nature in all its moods and seasons. You sense new beginnings, revel in the bounty of the land as it reaches maturity and hibernate for the lean months of winter. In all these phases, you capture in words and images the raw beauty of simple things and the joy that there is to be had in just living.We love the image of fruit salad Freesias and we can sense that your garden is beginning to stir from its slumber just as here everything is settling down, waiting to be put to bed. The rhythm of the seasons and the sense of being a tiny fragment of a universal whole is evident in this beautifully reflective post. Perfect!
Hello Jane and Lance, I don't know what to say to such a fine compliment! I know, with your own gardening experience, that you'd know how involving the process is, and how rewarding. Thank you indeed!
The heavenly fruit salad in your beautiful Garden of Eden makes me simply happy.
Yes, it's almost edible, Hannah!
Simply beautiful !
...and simply kind of you, Paul.
my freesias are the white species, and oh so fragrant as they light up!Honourable and simple, yes.
yes, Diana, that fragrance is a knockout! I hope yours grace your garden for many years to come.
Dear Faisal, yes, yes, yes, you express my sentiments perfectly. The idea of timelessness, gardening as art, how anything can be made beautiful ... and Zara, looking so lovely. I am so aware of spring renewal in the garden. No wonder all that poetry has been written about spring.
Dear Sue, yes, there's certainly a quickening and an enlivening going on. All the birds come alive too. Me too, with this newfound sunshine!
Dear Faisal, oh, isn't spring wonderful! I love my garden so much and I love to read about yours. Your freesias are so beautiful - I'm enjoying mine, too.
