There is a correlation between weather and how busy one is outside of the garden. I can offer proof. The first part of April, when the weather was cold and rainy, I had all kinds of time to work in the garden, and had to just sit and wait out the weather.
But now that Spring has decided to return, I am as busy as ever and have little time to spend in the garden, at least for a few days.
Did I not mention that Spring had returned on Sunday? It did, still a little wobbly and cool in the mornings, but improving each day. It offered no explanation as to where it was those first few weeks of April, it just came back, and brought with it the woodland violets, which had also disappeared when it got cold again.
And Spring offered no apologies for what its absence did to some of the flowers and trees and shrubs. But I think Spring feels bad about disappearing and is trying to make amends with blue skies, sunshine and temperatures that get closer to perfection each day.
Weekend weather should be outstanding… so it is hard to stay mad at Spring.
If only I wasn’t so busy.
