>Farewell Old Man Winter

>Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness! **


Yes, by the way we strange Australians keep track of the seasons, Spring does indeed start tomorrow.

There’s been a lot of this strange wet stuff falling from the heavens recently and those whose memories can stretch back far enough that they are able to remember life before the drought [ ie more than a decade and a half ] seem to think that it might be something called ‘rain’ … well, whatever the heck it is, the garden likes it.

and no, I didn’t forget that I promised a different species of post today but I’m just so happy to be heading into Spring that I thought you might forgive a small detour :]
