Today the olive tree has moved back out to the veranda steps, a sure sign that it's spring at last. There's tea in my mug, newly wound yarn in my yarn bowl, Bamse is sitting on my feet and I have new sunglasses. What more could I ask for?
Now the weather is getting warmer I can start using my corner again. During the winter our built in veranda is decidedly chilly so the door is shut for months on end, and all I can do is peer wistfully at my favourite spot in the house. In my corner I have the wonderful cane chair my parents gave me for my 35th birthday, a sturdy basket full of yarn and a small table with Very Useful And Lovely Things (no, definitely not nick-nacks!). This morning I've tidied and cleared away the junk we seem to store out there while we don't use it, and now I'm boiling the kettle and planning an afternoon of knitting, reading and tea drinking!
There's no nicer way to spend a Sunday morning! We filled our pockets with all kinds of wonderful treasure.
The greylag goose turned up on the field in front of our house a while ago, and then first oyster catchers came on the 8th of March, as always, to celebrate International Women's Day, so I have high hopes for Spring arriving soon, but it's still chilly, I haven't dared put my olive tree out yet, the fritillaries are on my kitchen table rather than in the flower bed, and I'm very happy that I've finished knitting a warm and cosy shawl I've been working on for a while as I have a feeling I'm going to need it....
