End of the Month View - March 2017

E la fel cum ziceam și anul trecut, pe vremea asta: e poate cea mai frumoasă perioadă din an, cea cu luatul de la capăt. E multă energie în grădină, un ritm alert, toate se grăbesc să fie cum au mai fost acum un an. E un amestec de tot felul de culori, de tot felul de nuanțe de verde, de crengi de-abia înmugurite, de ramuri încă goale. Sunt noutăți și surprize în fiecare zi, se tot întâmplă lucruri. Spațiul nu e încă ocupat, orice schimbare e la vedere, ne uităm la detalii, care ce formă are, care pe unde a mai răsărit, ce formă au bobocii sau cum cade lumina. / It is perhaps the most beautiful time of the year, the r e s t a r t  one.There is a lot of energy in the garden, everything in it is rushing to be as it was last year. A mix of many colours, of all sorts of shades of green, of branches in blooms or that are still empty. There are news and surprises every day as many things are happening. The space is not yet completely covered with plants, so every change can be seen at once, we  have eyes for the details - who is breaking through, who is in bloom, whose buds are opening, how the light is falling on leaves.

Primule 2017

Dintotdeauna ne-au plăcut, mici și vesele cum sunt ele și printre primele care apar în grădină.Primule 2017 .

”Thy smiles I note, sweet early Flower,
That peeping from thy rustic bower
The festive news to earth dost bring,
A fragrant messenger of Spring.” (Samuel Taylor Coleridge)

”But, tender blossom, why so pale?
Dost hear stern Winter in the gale?
And didst thou tempt the ungentle sky
To catch one vernal glance and die? ”

In a Vase on Monday - A Back Home One

So glad to be back home after some time spent abroad and happy to found in my garden so many spring delights in full bloom! It was not easy to choose something for the Monday vase, but finally I decided to I cut the last few snowdrops that miraculously were still fresh, some twigs of Forsythia that have just opened, daffodils and my favourite blue ”Roman Hyacinths”.
