In anticipation


Last week we experienced another snow storm and were covered by 20 cm of snow. But today when strolling around my garden I could feel the spring in every breath of fresh air. I was amazed to see that the apple and plum trees were full of clusters of buds. Within a few weeks these buds will burst and the flowers will fill the garden with wonderful scent and I will be there to capture the magnificent sight.

 Plum tree.
Here you can see how generous the flower buds are, not long now before they will burst open !
Old mossy Apple tree buds.
Have you seen any signs of Spring yet ?

Ik hoop voor je dat de sneeuwstormen voorlopig verleden tijd zijn en de lente zich de komende weken volop laat zien. Het lijkt hier wel herfst, regen en wind hebben de overhand. We moeten dus nog even geduld hebben!

Liefs, Ingrid

Hello Aina ~ here in Australia we are moving into Autumn and so it is lovely to see your fruit trees in bud while ours our losing their leaves. We have an apple tree and every year I think it looks so dead that it could never flower again but every year it does!

Hallo Aina, habe gerade deinen Blog entdeckt und bin ganz begeistert-so schöne Fotos. Wir haben auch einen alten Hof und ich liebe Shabby. Alles ganz nach meinem Geschmack. Ich schmöcker jetzt noch ein wenig. Ich wünsche dir eine gute Zeit.
Auf bald

Du har säkert gått många rundor i trädgården sedan du gjorde inlägget. Och vårtecknen har säkert blivit många fler.
Här blommar vitsipporna och det är så vackert mot de vita björkstammarna. Förra året satte jag ett plommonträd och jag är så glad att det överlevt, att inte heller sorken hittat dess rötter.
Så fint du fotat trädens knoppar!

Önskar dig en fin start på Maj månad!

Oh yes, things are beginning to bloom in my garden in Ireland. I have lots of rosebuds, which I am very excited about. The crabapples have so much blossom on this year, so it's looking good for the jelly.It is such a joy when you begin to see the signs of life and regeneration. Love Linda x
