It’s been wild Spring weather this week – lots of rain and lots of wind. Destructive wind that has rendered my washing line inoperable. It was a soul destroying moment to see it collapsed in a heap with my washing trailing on the floor. Not to mention a certain small dog lying in what became a most comfortable spot.
But the weather is good. For the grass. For the trees. In fact for the soul. But that’s another story!
For the moment I am delighting in the Spring Green. How we’re starting to move from the dull browns to the vivid greens of the grass, trees and plants that are bursting with spring green colour. There’s still a way to go but slowly but surely we’re getting the natural environment around the house back to what nature intended before the bulldozers rolled in.
You can see here how the land in the top picture has changed
A little closer view of the trees
Mental note to get the strimmer fired up again on this grass. Or we’ll need to buy a goat.
It’s not too bad close to the house either
The bee hives have been cleared out for new hives to grow.
It’s so exciting to see all this happening before our very eyes. I am cautiously optimistic that the lawn will start to join up it’s greeness soon but we’ve a way to go yet before that big reveal!
