Spring is definitely here.

Wow, I really wasn’t prepared for how quickly spring would set in this year.  I mean, usually it’s a more gradual transition – with every day getting slightly warmer, and in turn providing a bit more encouragement to spend time outside getting things ready in plenty of time, and normally I’m perfectly able to keep on top of things – but not this year!

It would seem that no sooner had I turned over the page of August on our wall Calendar, we skipped a month went straight from Winter (which has been extremely mild by Canberra standards) to mid-Spring!

Needless to say, I’ve been playing catchup these past few days.  Funnily enough, the garden seems to realise that I’m running behind and has gone about picking up the slack itself – self seeding lettuces, sage plants, zucchinis, tomatoes – and so on.

So here’s a quick look at some of the exciting changes in the past few days, with new things happening everyday.   Despite feeling a little stiff from all the crouching, I can’t wait to get out there again once the sun is up!
