Lovely. Makes me think of William Carlos William.
Such a high compliment! _/\_

Nature is always getting in the way.
We too have started our gardening for clients and like the red rake have been stalled by lots of cold snaps in Scotland. The bitter cold easterlies have been a blowing from the Arctic…BRRRRRRrrrrr! My sympathies….:)
I’m right there with you! Here in the Northeast of the US we have a little saying – if you don’t like the weather wait a few minutes. It snowed last week and will be in the 60’s this weekend. So hard to resist starting in the gardens (I’m a gardener by trade too) but things will still want their leaf blankets for probably a week or two more.
Yes… Still the same here and still a danger of frost! Been sewing seeds in the propagators! Tomatoes up after 10 days! But like you am itching to get outside… But such a cold wind! Ah! Patience, patience… How lovely to hear from you and thank you for stopping by… Won’t be long now surely? 🌱🌿🌞
Lovely shot and I’m guessing that red rake will be picked back up again. 🙂
