We had such a lovely day today! 8o degrees, sunny, with gentle breezes. We spent the morning lazing around the house, doing some chores, getting seeds and soil and compost for the yard. In the afternoon, I tidied my beds (flower and vegetable, not the kind needed for sleep); picked up brush (the willow drops a lot of branches) and last year’s leaves (oops! we didn’t clean up last fall!); raked compost into the garden, planted radishes, peas, carrots and lettuce; watered. The kids had an Easter egg hunt outside, which is always a lot of fun. David hid the eggs this year. The pair balanced on the bird feeder was pretty cute.
Then we went for a walk into town and picked up dinner (for everyone except me, since I’m still on mushy food). Post-dinner was also pleasant–we were all mellow from being outside, working hard and soaking in sunshine.
Some days are the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad kind. And others are just the opposite. Today was one of those days. I feel like liquid sunshine is running in my veins, and there’s a song fluttering behind my lips.
I know how you feel. I took time between revising scenes to plant out my winter beans, and get the seedling trays ready for the rest of the winter crops; silver beet, pumpkin, tomatoes, etc. Of course, only one tray for each sort because I only have a small garden plot. Now, I can watch the seedlings grow while I continue on my revision novel. 🙂
I love gardening in the spring, more so than in any other season.
