How to Enjoy Spring

Spring is finally here! The spring weather brings forth renewal and rebirth just as the promise of Easter brings you chocolate eggs. One more thing: don’t forget to brush and feed your cat.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Spring-cleaning

Why I should stop recycling. So glad to enjoy this sunny Sunday right now. Just had my first espresso outside in the garden. Ok, I was wearing  a coat and my roof needs some minor repairs after the 2 storms from last weekend. But I can feel spring is near. And it makes me happy.

I started the spring-cleaning and decided to recycle some of the big boxes a kept aside. It was clear from the start this was not going to be easy…

One more thing: I’m always trying to avoid talking about awkward political situations or controversial topics on my blog. But this week a lot of us woke up in shock after a barbaric dictator launched a full-scale invasion on Ukraine. Figuratively speaking this is happening in my backyard. This action is definitely a war crime. Can’t stop wondering what’s next… Invasion of Poland? Finland? Lithuania? Latvia? Estonia?

Poisoning opposition leaders, murdering journalists, suppress populations, invading Ukraine, violently breaking up peaceful demonstrations… Welcome to the world of a pathological liar, dictator and war criminal.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Sea of Green

Goodbye winter, hello spring! Well, this post is not about SOG, a gardening method that cannabis growers use to grow the maximum number of plants possible in the shortest amount of time. This is about the fresh, new green colours I see in nature while I’m walking in the first days of spring.

Green is not my favourite colour (it’s grey and black) but I love all the new green colours of spring plants, first leaves and grass. Spring wakes me and I’m calm again, just like Gustav Mahler said.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

Springy Temps

Beautifully springy temps! Looking around and noticing the blue sky, singing birds and bumblebees. Immediately, Mr. Bowie knew: it was finally spring. The first thing you want to do on that first warm weekend of the season is drink fresh tap water outside. I went for sweet chocolate ice cream.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Almost Home

Oh Spring, Where Art Thou? They say that half an hour of daily walking can be hugely beneficial to your health. It’s good for boosting your memory, mood and creativity. I’m trying to walk at least an hour or two while Mr. Bowie is sleeping and in recovering mode. It helps me to relax, refresh and recharge. Get myself emotionally winter-ready.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

Ready for Spring

Getting the garden ready for spring. Spring is the busiest time of year in the garden. It’s also a great time to start planning and preparing your garden. The first and possibly most important spring garden task is to clean up the garden. After you clean up, and before you plant, it’s time to amend the soil.

We could certainly do with a paw, Mr. Bowie…

Is the spring coming?

Mr. Bowie turned to the sunlight and shook his grey head. And whispered to me “Winter is dead.”

Guess it is time to call the gardener…
