Today in Trelystan

Fantastic. We have sunshine. Dainty zephyrs are twitching the leaves just enough to keep things stirring. Sweet birds sing.








Like old stoned hippies we are gibbering with joy at the warmth and light. We have wet feet from the morning's heavy dew. We've breathed deeply and sucked in the scent of fresh leaves and blossom and feasted our eyes on spring's luminous green - it's like someone has just flicked the 'growth' switch. We gazed deep into the heart of a vibrant dandelion flower and noted it's vibrancy against a cerulean sky.Ferns are unwinding their fiddle-heads, next will be bluebells and that sky will seem to be beneath our feet.

















I'm off to sow seeds now. There is a waxing moon in the night sky and the soil is warming. Seems the right thing to do today.

Lovely - every single breath of life is so precious . . the growth switch has been thrown up here as well now. Planning to take the camera tomorrow when I take the dogs out - there are a couple of wild flowers I don't recognise.

Beautiful photos, worthy of inclusion in a book.
Doesnt a bit of sun make a difference!

Lovely photos. Fresh untainted air with warming sunshine make the world so beautiful. Fingers in the soil such an elemental delight. Enjoy yourself.

Lovely pictures and you are the perfect poet!
I personally hate dandelions poking up from my lawn, but you made me like them today at least.

Fantastic photos and I love the comment about the "growth switch" - yes, here too!

Wonderful photos - love the dandelions. Loved the blossom yesterday too, was the middle one a Chaenomeles? If so which? I loved the creamy doubleness of it.

I think I may rest a few days more yet. Lacking in enthusiasm.

Fantastic photos! :) I'm loving this weather, it's just a pity I had to work this week!

You say it all in a few words and with great photos.

Zoë - It is a Chaenomeles - 'Kinshiden'.

Sorry about the lack of enthusiasm - hope it reappears.
