Spring is on the Way
Spring is on the way. We're in the last month of Winter. Blue skies have been sighted and for the first time in ages we've been able to dry things on the line. Score. Slowly, slowly, more flowers are appearing. The camellias are the most bountiful, but we have a lovely bush of pink blossom as well. Jonquils have appeared and masses of violets. For the first time in my life I have smelt violets. A friend told me that you have to gather up lots of them to really get the scent. So I gathered up scores. And I can finally say that I know the sweet elusive scent of violets.
