Yearning for spring is a national passtime in Canada.* In February our thoughts turn to warmer days, gardening and dreaming about going outside without wearing boots. **
But for most of us, spring is still two months away ! How is it that year after year we forget that teeny tiny fact ?
I am already on my second pot. The first is starting to look a little past it but still smelling wonderful.
I'm talking Hyacinths here. Love 'em. Love the smell. I stick my nose up to the blooms and sniff DEEEEEPLY. Aahhhhhhhhhhh, THAT is the smell of spring. I even love the smell of the wet soil when I water them.
Maybe today I'll browse through my gardening magazines and start planning my garden.
* Those of you on the West Coast can just skip today's Blog. I know, I know, the damn daffodils are already blooming out there !!!
** Those of you in the Halifax area who manage to get through the winter without boots can ignore that sentence.
