Happy dreaming!

My first visit to the plot this year was on Monday morning, which was cold and frosty.  No sooner had I arrived and a robin appeared, perching close-by in the blackthorn.

I noticed this on Facebook and/or Twitter earlier in the week which I like and agree with, so happy dreaming!


Have a good weekend!

    Lovely to see that robin and the signs of new growth down on the plot. We had a butterfly here in the garden a couple of days ago! You’re right about the garden dreaming, it’s the best bit sometimes! CJ xx

    I guess the dream is a continuous looping one; January-January

    That sentiment is so true. I bet the robin was hoping you were going to do a bit of digging and uncover some tasty treats. I must look at my own sedum and see if there’s any new growth, I suspect there will be. It’s nice to see the new season starting already.

  5. Just spent the day shoveling snow. I need to do a lot dreaming before spring! Lovely robin picture.

    How true that is, there are so many exciting signs of the coming season and now is the time for dreaming. Nice to know your little robin will be accompanying you.

    The sighting of crocus poking through the ground and the sedum shoots is exciting indeed. We’re being blessed with the polar vortex and bitter cold, so it’s certainly dreaming weather. How nice to have your robin chum stop by.

    Yes, yes, but there’s nothing like seeing the beginnings of new spring growth. I love the anticipation.
