We took these photos last weekend at the fortress. Three days before this, when I had been up there with my grandparents, there was scarcely a hint of green anywhere. Now, a week later, nearly everything is green. Our grass has turned green and grown several inches and almost needs a mow already. Spring always seems to turn up when I’ve just about given up on it, like a wayward lover appearing at your doorstep with flowers, two weeks too late.

And then all of a sudden its as if it’s always been here. It’s so warm and lovely here to day I even had a bounce on the trampoline. This place really seems like a different country once the warmer weather sets in. Too bad we’re off in less than three weeks. But I guess it will be spring in America too!

  1. Gorgeous! Well, along the coast we’re having the coldest Spring in 55 years. There’s still lots of blooming going on (and it’s always green), but I should think that there will be plenty of Spring waiting for you in 3 weeks time [even though it’s so much warmer, in general, one state inland]. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. In the UK everything is at least 3 weeks early. The blossom has finished, the daffs are long gone, and the summer flowers are in bloom, and it is only the end of April. This weather is crazy – I had wrongly assumed that our flowers would be late after such a cold winter. We have had no rain now for 2 months.
