Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung at our house, you want to know how I can tell?

Well the plums are ripening on next-doors plum tree (and being eaten by the King Parrots - which I was planning to photograph but the wretched dog started barking).


And today I pulled out the last of the Broad Beans and am drying them in the sunshine (some to plant next year and the rest to use in cooking)...


And the flowers on the Hydrangea have gone from this...

To this...


But the most telling sign of all is that we've taken the cover off the World's Most Boring and Pointless pool...


Fancy a dip anyone?

sigh.

3 people love me:

Better than our pool, which a couple of days ago resembled GI cordial :) If we remortgage the house to pay for all the chemicals we need, we might be lucky enough to be able to swim in it by January

Sigh. They are a nightmare aren't they. I so want to turn ours into a pond :)
