Is Spring in the air?
For the last little while, we’ve been having some very lovely warm temperatures. For our region/area that is…. But as the weatherman says: Don’t make a mistake, tis still winter. Yet some of us, must have some spring fever at least? I have them as well. Yesterday, I wasn’t too hungry for breakfast and decided, that I would just do, what I did before I started to have breakfast in the morning, together with me hub. Just have a cuppa of cocoa and have my brunch when I come back.
Problem wasss, that when we got to where my husband’s station isss, the smells from one restaurent was just killing me. So I went inside and started out by ordering some toast and jam and a coffee, take out please. I turned around to just look around me, when I noticed a number of people have the what I call: the lot… I turned back to the lady, who was toasting my bread, when I asked whether they would do take outs of… and I pointed to the various people enjoying their breakfasts. Oh yes, I could have some too. So I placed the order and within a very short time, I had my order ready and headed for the car.
aaah, it was, just wonderful when I reached the nature reserve, where I daily walk our Tipper. The sun was shining, there wasn’t a wind anywhere to be felt and the sun was warm. It was only just about 9am.
aah, but I soo enjoyed just having a breakfast outside in nature. Without a sound of a car or a person around me. I heard the Chickadees calling their name. I heard the newly arrived Red Cardinal and I while I was munching away on my bacon and eggs, slightly over, with my coffee, I was looking to see if there already were some brave woodpeckers around. Not a sound was heard from them. But I could smell the wet grass underneath my feet.
I can’t believe myself. Born in the tropics. 5 degrees below the equator and here I was, a tropic-child, in what still is winter, breakfast underneath a sunny and blue sky!
No sighs outside yet, that spring is around the corner. But am sure, that before long, it will be here.
I am ready for you, Ms. Spring. I have my first page written in my gardening journal.. tis for our front entrance. Hub has to take the wall apart and that means re-laying some of the brick…and sooo, I will make my centre insert… meaning there will be a tiny part in which I will have some plants and there will be smaller tiles, so that the chips of broken bricks will be replaced by smaller and scentier plants… oooh! I CAN’T Wait for SPRING!!! am READY!
