And so it begins

Officially, spring began on the first of September, although, here in New Zealand, it's a chosen date as opposed to being based on the solstice.

Either way you look at it, winter has been soooo mild and spring-like. We usually run out of firewood some time before it warms up but it looks like that won't happen this year. 

And, so with each passing day, as I prepare and expand my flower beds, it was so hard to wait until the end of October (when it should be after the last frost) to put out the seeds. Many of the flowers are already sprouting and I have one open tulip with hyacinths showing color!

So, I decided that I couldn't wait any more...

All the seeds that I harvested from my garden last year went out to the garden earlier this week. Today, I see little green sprouts popping up and I couldn't be happier!


I still don't have comment moderation for this blog, so if I don't return your comment soon, I will be there eventually :)
