You too are definitely having spring. The light is bright and the grass is green. I could watch people work for hours.

Peggy said...

That is my tea break occupation on the allotment!

I like to watch other people work and sometimes I even offer my advice and tell them what they're doing wrong. Not really.

This photo is so fresh and spring looking. The touches of color are great -- the orange container, the blue jacket, the white flowers.

It looks really good, so they must be doing a great job :)

You can almost smell the enthusiasm of the gardeners mixed in with the lovely scent of freshly turned earth. Doesn't get more "spring-y" than that.

I see the heaps still there...

Are these communal garden plots?

Hi there - Thanks for stopping by my place yesterday and your kind comments about my writing...I am a huge fan of gardening too, and hoping for a bit more spring here to get things going too. Your spot looks lovely - So sorry to hear about your shed being broken into...Sad what some people will do.
I had to laugh about your laundry smelling of fuel, because my sweetie is a diesel mechanic, and the laundry room here frequently smells of it - seems to get everywhere.

Wishing you a productive spring

I think we're all agreed that it's great to watch other people working!

Alice, I'll be visiting properly as soon as I can. Somehow my free time has evaporated at the moment.

Linda, these are individual plots on a larger site owned by the city council. You rent a plot for an annual sum of around £60.

Julia, I think I'll have to be less sensitive to the smell of petrol in the garage. It is a garage, after all!

Oops! I think I may have deleted some comments tonight. Apologies! I am so tired I should obviously call it a day and get to bed.
