People often ask me if I like living with changing seasons. Well, I say that we have 2 seasons in the Caribbean – rainy & dry. Then I go onto explain about Christmas breeze. They smile back at me weakly. Uh, I need a little more time before I’ll get excited about wardrobe rotation… but spring? Spring, I like.
For one thing, the back garden is coming back to life. I moved the maple leaf to give tulip some room to grow:
Sedum’s just hanging out. I said a few kind words of encouragement.
The maple’s out to be massive again this year. Buds on every branch!
Indoors, I got some oregano to sprout. It was high time I admitted that crooning over dead herb plants won’t bring them back to life. 3 months into this experiment, even I had to accept that our 2 weeks away over Christmas did them in.
These were just sprigs from the supermarket herb packet. I think they are happier not getting chopped-up for dinner. Trust me, you don’t have to buy the potted plants. Ever.
In my next post, I’ll write about how I am on the horns of a dilemma. It’s like gerbils in my brain. Argh!
