The meandering thoughts of a modern-day hearth witch.

Hedgerow Ramblings // Which season is it?!

Mild it has been here over the past month - so mild that the bulbs have been fooled into thinking Spring is here. 

Poor, delicate, brave little daffodils have begun to open, offering a welcome flash of bright colour and the promise of what is round the corner. Sadly, yesterday's frosts brought a reminder that Mother Nature will always have the last word and they drooped wearily as the temperature fell below freezing. 

We - along with the bulbs - are perching nervously on the cusp of the seasons: some days it definitely feels like Spring, but we are yet to leap clear of Winter.

Enjoy the bright crispness of this balance between the two.

It feels like winter here now. We have snow and very cold temps. Later this week it will be almost spring-like again. Mother Nature is having fun with us this year. I like that about Her. you never know what She's going to give you!

Blessings, V.
