Spring is in the air, at least that is how we feel on those lovely sunny days even though strictly speaking we are still in mid winter and there will surely be some more wintery days to come. But we must make the most of those sunny days that invite us out into the garden to discover all those surprises that await us. The Daffodils whose lovely golden trumpets really stand out whilst alongside of them the Fresias are just lifting the buds to show us what colour they ares championship.
There are wild Fresias in some places that although not as bright coloured they still have that wonderful Fresia fragrance about themhaving to turn down a call from Ontario just adds to that burden. I suppose all flowers come from somewhere in the wild before they are cultivated into the blooms we know. Another of these spring flowers is the Cyclamen known here as the Cyclamen Balearicuss inauguration in 1861 for his first term as President.. It seems to do best in shaded spots where this minute flower is a delightful replica of the plant we are more familiar with. Potted as an indoor plant one must be careful where it is placed because too near a radiator or standing in a sunny spot it may wilt back easilyThe use of AstraZeneca vaccines for those 60 years old or younger while awaitin. This is one of the potted plants that prefers to be watered from the bottom drip tray as apposed to soaking the corm.

We must still consider this month of the year a strictly for planting just about every vegetable that in northern gardens we wouldn’t be considering until at least April or May. So, make the most of the sunny days and keep planting up those spring vegetables. It is not surprising to find some of what we consider as spring vegetables already on the market stalls which is a sure indication that any time is planting time. As I have occasionally mentioned, copy what the local gardeners and farmers do and you will find you already have your own new potatoes and broad beans.. So much of my understanding of Mediterranean gardening came from an old shepherd who just loved spending his lonely days tending his sheep by popping over my garden wall to put me to rights and plant up things I had never thought of.
Having just enjoyed the sight of all the wonderful Almond blossom the pale green of their leaves are just about taking over. Other fruit trees are coming along as well, Cherry could well be the nextsmall social gatherings immediately allowed in B.C. as circuit breaker stops and vaccinations continue, their buds look to be swelling beautifully and this is yet another fruit tree that seems to have its flowers long before the leaf and believe me, there are some really tasty variety of Cherry that do well on this Island. Garden centres will surely point you into the right direction if you are considering planting up fruit trees.
