Waiting for Spring

The cherry blossoms have come and gone in the rest of Japan.  I’m watching every day, waiting for them to pop out here.  The dark bark tree in front of the white bark trees is a cherry tree.  I think I see some little buds.  I hope I see some little buds.

 
Ted planted some corn, melon, and kabocha on our balcony, later to be transplanted to the garden.  Yesterday he noticed one kabocha has started growing. Yay!

 
It takes a long time for the snow to melt here, but flowers are trying to grow anyway.


 
It will soon be beautiful with millions of flowers – spring is coming!

  2. My garden is all weeds at the moment and I have promised it some attention on Saturday - if my dressmaking doesn't get in the way!
