Wildflowers in my garden, Lithuania |

Winter changed to spring overnight, like someone flipped a switch. One day it was dark and grey with a distinct chill during the day and ground frost at night. The next day the sky was clear blue and temperatures hit 22˚ C (72˚ F). It was time, finally, to get out into the garden and start planting. While I was ankle and wrist-deep in earth, life sprung up all around me. The grass grew thick and lush, heavily peppered with blazing yellow dandelions. Here and there, pockets of blue and pink flowers added colour, while large white daisies looked pure and serene against their tangled green backdrop. What a beautiful office I have.

  1. Who would have thought that the plain little Daisy or Dandelion could look so stunning. It’s all down to bad press…they should be taken out of the Weeds section of the RHS Encyclopaedia and transferred into Wild Flowers section. After all, why should Red Poppies, Marigold and Forget-Me-Nots be given wildflower status whereas Yellow Poppies, Dandelions and Wild Violets be classified as Weeds? Biological racism I say!

    • Thank you! We waited for the “switch” for a long time – it was well overdue. A gradual change might have been nicer – but I’m not complaining!

      • Hi June – it feels like the first 5 years we lived in VA there was a weather change every Fall that felt like a switch! And it catches you by surprise and is nice – anyhow – the colors against the green in this post is nature’s electric switch as a gift
