At this point it seems that winter is never ending. It has been quite nippy here of late, down to -26 C at worst. On top of it all it is even snowing today. Truth be told I am getting a wee bit tired of winter, and long for spring.
I know it will be a long wait, but what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than sitting by the fire, reading gardening books, whilst dreaming of spring. Monty Don is my gardening guru, he is so knowledgable and I totally enjoy his writing.
The cherry branches I brought indoors in early January never really made it to full blossom. The tender buds turned brownish before opening up properly. So into the compost they went yesterday, to be replaced by these small pussy willows.
Now they have not exactly reached the desired fluffy softness yet, but I live in hope. Just as I live in hope that this winter will come to an end, and that there indeed is light, warmth and spring at the end of this long winter tunnel.
