I had meant to do a little sewing yesterday….but we finally had one day of spring! (Don’t worry, it’s raining again today!). I spent the whole day outside weeding, planting, puttering and making a little dent in the chaos that my garden is trying to turn itself into. It’s a bit of a hopeless battle, but it felt good to be outside in the sun and doing stuff.
This is the proof that even though the weather is mostly horrible round here at the moment it really, truly is spring….they say when the apple tree blooms, that’s it, the sign of spring.
Things are starting to flower, we’ve passed the Eisheilige (the days in mid-May after which it’s supposedly safe to plant things that aren’t frost resistant) and really, summer should be on its way.
I have my doubts, but it is a little warmer and I’ve taken the bold step of packing away my winter clothes and mentally moving into summer mode…cut off chinos and short sleeves…which is a little chilly, but I guess I’ll harden up fast!
I hope the sun is shining where you are…maybe you’d be so kind as to send it my way!
PS And of course the big plus is that I’m indoors and sewing today!
