Something strange is in the sky today. It is round, yellow and warm. If I remember correctly, it is the sun! It seemed to be a slow turn from winter to spring this year and although summer should now be creeping up on us, it doesn't feel as though we have had many warm days to enjoy yet. Still, as today would appear to be one of them, I felt it was necessary to make the very most of it and spend as much time outdoors as I can, sitting in the sun, knitting and relaxing. So, this comes to you from my garden, which I am a little behind with and for which I am, of course, going to blame the weather.
Actually, I think that's one of the things I am enjoying about gardening, it all takes place at a different pace. I'm still fairly new to it, I only really started actively gardening about 3 years ago, but it seems to be a perfect hobby at this point in my life. Yes, some things in gardening happen very quickly. Seeds pop up in a matter of days, plants can seem to sport a couple of inches more growth in a day or two of sunshine and weeds grow in a blink of a eye. But, I can now appreciate that not everything can happen instantly, it's a long term project which will probably never be perfect and will always be, to some extent, a work in progress. All concepts which I'm still learning about and beginning to accept and enjoy. I'm finding that refreshing and comforting at the same time.
