I know that we have seen better times but we cannot always choose what life throws at us.
At last up here in the north we are able to take long walks and enjoy the spring.
During the walk I was able to find Pennyworts (Anemone hepatica) which were blooming beautifully. About 15 years ago it was protected by the law but since then it has been spreading and is nowadays quite common.
Spring is finally here and spring flowers have started to arrive to the shops.
Bought my first violet (viola) today. It was a bit difficult to choose the color and ended up buying a classic white one. The scent it has is simply staggering.
It sure has been a strange start for the new decade. For the first time we did not have a winter. It was like having an autumn that lasted for five months. Up here in the north it really gets dark and miserable without the snow. I have no idea what a winter like this will do for the garden and the plants.
Luckily the days are now getting longer and we can finally start to enjoy life again.
