Spring is coming!
While it is only just August, I am seeing signs of Spring. (You have to look closely around here since winter looks pretty darn green.)
The jasmine is budding.
My sweet peas are sprouted.
And, the mango is thinking of spiking up its unattractive flowers.
For the first time, I've succeeded in growing nasturtium. I was speaking with my mother today about them and she shared with me her memory of playing among nasturtium when she was a little girl- how good they smelled and how that smell still brings her a joyful feeling.
