You do not need to wait until May to see the flowers in bloom.
From the moment that March begins signs of Spring are all around. From lighter mornings and evenings, to the multitude of gorgeous flowers, plants and trees emergeing into bloom as soon as the sun begins to shine.
Our Spring delight is of course the Daglan Flower Festival. Which this morning was brimming with vivid colours and intriguingly inviting perfumes of new blooms.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet,
but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
From a song written in the 1930s by Will Holt.
This one on sale today was magnificent.
I love lemons:- Reminders of Lemoncello which we drank for the first time on a very hot day in Sorrento, gorgeous. Lemon flavoured cakes, puddings, main courses the list is endless.
Every flower that you could possibly think of was for sale today, plus exotic trees and shrubs, herbs and honey.
Hush, you can hear it?
The rustling in the grass.
Bringing you the welcome news that Winter’s day is long past.
Soft, can you feel it?
The warm caressing breeze,
Telling you that the buds are bursting from on the trees.
Look, can you see them?
The primrose, daffodil and rose.
Now you must believe it, Spring is here again.
