Welcome autumn!

here comes the sun...

After a much colder winter than usual, spring needs a little help around here. Our bulbs are doing well, daffodils, hyacinth and our first tulips, but not much else survived. Even the iris are looking a bit surprised at the unexpected string of low temperatures.

It was snowing last Sunday and the garden is getting planted this Sunday.

"The smiles are returning to their places."

Thank you, George Harrison, for a song that never fails to make me smile.

Hello Barbara,
how amazing that you can plant such a spring in your garden when it snowed last week. But I guess it is warm enough again. I also planted some flowers like Pansies and Daffodills.
Greetings, Johanna

Happy almost Spring, Barbara. It was snowing here this morning! Not sticking, but beautiful, very wet, snowflakes! Daffodils and tulips are several inches out of the ground, but no blooms yet... but I expect to see daffodils by the end of this week. Your pics make me all the more eager!

Dearest Barbara,

What a stark contrast in one week's time! Glad you're now planting and that things will start looking friendly and enjoyable for the eye again.
Have a great week, lots of love,
