These huge old trees offered a welcome shade from the heatwave we’ve suddenly been hit with. I expected fairytale creatures to appear from between the foliage at any minute, walking through this wood. Even the tree trunks had turned green with the flourishing ivy climbing on them. Sunlight streaming through the leaves added to the dreamy feeling.

The first tiny buds have appeared on a spiraea bush in the corner of our garden. A miracle every year! I could sit out on the patio for ages, just breathing in the rapidly advancing spring with all my senses.
It’s as though new life has been patiently waiting for the conducive enough circumstances all through winter, to suddenly get triggered into amazingly fast growth. I wish I could provide the right environment and push for my students’ learning more often! Especially this time of the year, only a month of the school year left, there are many wilted plants in the classrooms – teachers included.
Our herbs often sold as little plants growing in tiny plastic pots. It’s seldom that we use the whole lot at once, so my husband usually replants them into a bigger pot. Sometimes we are lucky, like with this lemon balm. Not only does it bring the welcome greenery into our kitchen but it also provides its scent and lovely hint of minty lemon into many dishes.
How lucky I am! I will have the chance to enjoy this precious time twice this year! There is something magical about the first faint touch of green on the deciduous trees. It’s the titillating anticipation of rebirth that I love about this time of year.
I enjoy personifying plants and trees, and keep imagining all kinds of shapes and creatures in them. This tree took the shape of an old hag, with crazy green hair, flailing multiple arms about 🙂
