The meteorologists promised us sunshine and blue skies, instead we are getting rain and fog. But, the air is warm, the birds are singing and the rain creates a scent of spring. There clearly is no way back now, winter is retreating.
This inspired me to drive all the way to the other side of town to buy the first spring flowers to plant in my terrace pots this year. I also got 80 liters of new compost soil for my bushes, clematis and rhododendron (that was a heavy one to carry). I am therefore still keeping my hopes up for some sunshine and gardening comes tomorrow.
Today instead of being outside, I am trying to relax, in front of the fire in my fireplace, maybe the last time this season. Perhaps next weekend it will be too warm to make a fire. I love my Saturday afternoons with coffee and white chocolate, while listening to Diana Krall. Her voice is very relaxing and soothing. I am leaving you with her lovely version of Burt Bacharach's " The Look Of Love".
