A Taste of Spring

We've been having the most delish weather lately so I'm making the most of it while it lasts. It's finally Spring and I'm loving it because it looks good, it smells good, it feels good and it tastes good too.
Last February I had sown a pot of mixed lettuce leaves and today I had my first taste of it and it was devine as nothing tastes as good as Spring does.
My Springflower meadow is a feast for all the senses and it's so cheery uppy! If this doesn't make you burst into a song and perform the Snoopy Dance of Joy, nothing will.
Is that the gnashing of your teeth I hear? Cheer up, envious reader, there is always next year. Be sure to buy an humongous amount of bulbs come Autumn, bung them in and then just wait until your very own Magic Spring Carpet unfolds before your very eyes.
If it all goes according to plan my Springflower carpet will have to be rolled up somewhere in May and then another feast will start: my wonderful world famous mobile wildflower meadow. I've just sown this years wildflower meadow, don't forget to sow yours!

In the mean time we at Bliss will be working our cute widdle behinds off in the garden, what with the removal of that ugly bruiser of a Leylandii hedge (all 30 meters of it), creating a small woodland area  and simply enjoying Spring; the happiness the garden brings and the warmth of the sun.

That meadow looks wonderful!
It's been glorious here as well, so this morning I planted the rest of my onions and the first potatoes.
Happy gardening! xxx

Jöhhhh, Tara and Dolly look very in peace with each other... so cute.
Yes, I really do envy you for your spring meadow because I've planted last autumn a lot of crocus bulbs and other spring bulb too... but I think the mice had more than one good lunch during winter time :o).
Kind regards
Alex

Beautiful spring weather here too Yolanda. Your meadow looks glorious and must sing out on sunny days. I hope that you are winning as far as that hedge is concerned :)

You've tanged all the senses with your beauteous spring presentation ... I was excited when you planted your spring meadow bulbs, and now look at the magic carpet! Soon the wildflowers! You are so right about the taste of spring and how lovely to have a spring salad...and everything else!

I'm still waiting for my first daffy to bloom that I planted in the autumn...it's nearly there~
