Spring is in the air

It is still cold, but spring is in the air. I didn't take good care of my garden last year. Too busy with my patchwork and quilting projects. Forgot to put bulbs in the ground last autumn. But it seems that there were still some bulbs in the garden and here and there a lonely tulip and narcissus popped up.

The Arum is doing very well in Greece. Doesn't need any care, just comes up and multiplies itself

These buds are supposed to become apricots. Sometimes we have a lot of them, and other times, like last year, we had only 5 !!!

The blossom is lovely, though

I always like the bright pink of the Japanese quince 

So, there is a little bit of colour in my garden at the moment, but most of it is still weeds !!! Time to get to work !!!!!!!!


  1. Heerlijk, die lentekriebels!
    Mooie foto's uit je tuin! En een beetje kleur is natuurlijk altijd welkom!
    Hier is het ook lente-achtig!
    Echt genieten!

    Lieve groet,

  2. Beautiful spring inspirations. I hope you enjoy your gardening this year.

  3. Je bent lekker bezig in je tuin en de eerst bloemetjes zijn er. Wij hebben hier voor Nederlandse begrippen ook prachtig weer, dus prima voor de tuin.
    Geniet ervan!

  4. Dearest Ada,
    Weeds always survive; sadly! We too had lots of Arums in white, cream and even black but they disappeared or are eaten by some critter.
    We also had a Japanese quince but it became too invasive so it's gone.
    Enjoy the unfolding of your spring. Ours came about in a hurry; from very cold and windy with rain to almost summer temperatures of 28°C.

  5. Ja hoor de lente komt eraan ....
    mooie foto's uit je tuin ...veel plezier met tuinieren ..

  6. Ook hier in Zweden is het voorjaar een maand te vroeg in aantocht, genieten dus, maar de tuin daar kunnen we pas in juni aan gaan werken
