waiting for the daffodils, wild primroses and sweet violets are blooming
Thursday, 08 Apr 10 9°C / 48°F
Some daffodils I planted in Autumn are named “February Gold”… well, it’s April and I’m waiting for them! Since three days ago it was cold, the snow was falling on the mountains all around and chilled water (tiny spheres of ice) was raining here. So daffodils are still sprouts, while glories of the snow are starting to flower just now.
Today the temperature has raised, finally the sun has appeared! and the sky is bright and clear. “Primavera nell’aria (spring is in the air)”. Along the hedges the wild primroses are blooming, looking like golden spots among the dried leaves or the green grass, and tufts of white and sweet violets are flowering.
(Violets… I would like to prepare candied violets, but I’m too busy in these days for such a whim!)
