The month of March is nearly over .
During the first few weeks I was busy Spring cleaning
our little holiday cottage La Petite Maison
for our first visitors.
A little French rustic adornment.
I don't think I've ever seen anyone wear the straw hat,
but it's there just in case.
The weather was perfect to bring out the Olive tree.
We also had a lot to do outside
to make good after the damage from the mini tornado.
The terrace pergola and new fencing was finished in time.
For the first arrival.
Even the tulips that come up every year were in bloom. can you see them on the right ?
I'm still waiting for the pink ones I put in pots to flower. They wont be long I'm sure .
This is what they looked like last year.
March is nearly over, the clocks have been put forward an hour,
I look forward to the longer days.
The birds are singing morning an evening
Finding a mate
To help build their nest
I don't think I've ever seen so many different types of finches
altogether at the same time, in the garden.
Maybe it's because Mr France has chosen some
different type of bird food, which he scatters on the ground.
and frantically building their nests.
We even had this visitor in the garden .
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera at the ready.
These photos are images from a source found on internet.
I'm hoping they'll nest again near us.
We hear them but don't always see them.
There's new shoots popping up all around the garden.
What could be better. I love this time of the year.
I haven't been feeling well this past week.
A nasty chest infection, which knocked me for six,
it was a pyjama week for me, thankfully it's slowly clearing up.
Now I'm looking forward to some warmer sunny days.
then I can get into gardening again.
Things have been put on hold, yet again.
I was hoping to get things done 'gardening by the moon '
this Spring, but it wasn't to be. I would have liked to test
to see if it did make any difference, when things were planted.
or pruned. Now I'll never know.
Lets hope April won't be full of showers.
Thanks for popping by
and if you are new to my blog I hope you'll come back again .
Look forward to seeing you again soon.
