What a week. It has flown by as if it had wings.
Much like the birds which are starting to make themselves known around the quartier.
The jasmine plant on our bedroom windowsill has put forth new shoots and is looking vibrant and vigorous.
The crocus bulbs which are pushing through the grass in the house opposite, and the earth of our window boxes, all tell me that spring is almost here.
No budlets for leaves on the trees yet, but you can just feel that they are not too far away.
We have averaged 10C each day this week. Almost a heatwave! The only worry is that we will have a late snowfall or the temp will drop very low, very quickly, and all the signs of spring will be killed by frost.
Even if we do get a killer frost, I will still have spring inside. I have two hyacinth bulbs being forced on (hopefully a pink and a purple) and they both have lovely strong flower stalks with tightly furled buds at present. Another few days and it will look and smell divine and springlike chez Pitt.
Stay tuned for pictures as spring shows its face more clearly.
