Well, it is half way through Winter now and there’s a nip in the air. The days are cold and the sweet scents that drift along on a nice warm breeze have gone.
I miss the smells of the flowers, the bushes & even the trees. ( I have a very good sense of smell ). I even miss the smell of some of the manures I use in the vegetable garden.
There is one spot on the way home from work, on the northern side of Kings Ave. Bridge, Canberra, where the sun hits a long stretch of juniper bushes and the smell, when driving past drifts into the car. Lovely.
There are signs that spring is on its way. I saw a bird yesterday flying with a small stick in its mouth, though not very straight, towards a nest I suppose it was building.Some trees & bushes buds are starting to swell and our Daphne is about to flower.
Ah!,Spring will be here soon enough and gardening will resume. our garden is on the wrong side of the house for winter crops.
Here a some little prints I’ve been working on with a garden theme.There are a few more to go and will be like a set of collector cards.( That’s the plan any way.)
Yes, I’m dreaming of warmer days to come.
