Rain and Rain and Rain; but spring is around the corner
Is it just me or do you also feel like the sky has been an endless rainy grey since November and that birdsong is a distant memory. The notion of venturing out holds little more promise than cracked lips and knuckles or a thorough drenching.
It is hard to resist the temptation to draw the curtains and put another log on the fire. But, cocooned in your Garden Escape, you can sit in warmth and comfort and contemplate the austere beauty of your garden in winter time. Perhaps the naked branches of the trees are draped in glittering ice crystals, or whipping to and fro in a mid-winter gale as rain pounds the bare earth. Maybe a few valiant song birds are silently foraging for grubs, or gorging at the feeders you topped up on the short trek to your garden haven.
Take a little time and you will see signs that Spring is peeping round the corner as the bleak days of darkness slowly ease into lighter mornings and lengthening afternoons. Almost imperceptibly, the landscape is greening led by the first shoots of snowdrops already piercing the sodden ground. Always a welcome sign that winter is on the wane and summed up beautifully by this rather sweet poem.
