I do love the garden ... not only because it's green, because it needs working in winter too and thenit's either muddy gray brown or snow white, so there must be more to it, maybe the strawberries, or the raspberries ... but also because of all the green, the shades the textures ....
Some of what I sew is green too - but mostly it's not - it is one of my favourite colours, but it's a complicated colour. And anyway if you plan on sewing in green you are goign to end up with red or blue or yellow, it's like buying clothes, you o because you need trousers and you will end up with shirts and sweaters, well really anything but trousers.

So far spring has been a more or less sewing-free time. But I did some gardening oer Easter ... sort of the spring high-light so far.
I dug a planting hole thingy for the newest garden-addition - a peach tree that's supposed to not mind the cold winters - well you see patch of land is in the valley, close to the river so ... you can dig about 10 inches until you get to the old rier bed - I guess - it's all pebbly and not nice to work with ...
But I also got to enjoy the early spring blooming things - theese blue hyacinths more or less grow wild all over the garden, there are also a few white/slightly pink ones that smell absolutely fantastic, if you liek the smell of hyacinths that is ...
