Now, one month later, it is 08:35 and 15:40...
That's 1,5 hour of more daylight within a month and now that pace only quickens. The days around the equinoxes are almost stable for a week or so, bringing down the average.
For me this is the period of "The long Wait".... The wait until spring comes. Not that I no longer enjoy winter, but it is no longer new, fresh and exciting. It has become everyday life. Still holding its charm and working its magic, but everyday life nonetheless.
Now is also the time of dreaming, of fantasising how the garden should be like in a few months and the time to start planning for it.
One of the plans that has to be thought over, maybe even cancelled, is the coming of dwarf goats. Why? Because the planned areas, where they would be frolicing about, contain an unpleasant surprise (for them) we had not taken into account: poisonous plants!
Ohhh how wonderful to be adding pictures of flowers again!!
