In several Slavic languages ( e.g. Russian, Polish or Czech) my name - Vesna - means Spring. Vesna was old Slavic goddess of Spring too.
My mum has birthday today and she invited family and some friends to join her for dinner. They brought her some present but they brought this box of primroses for me! How nice of them...
The Spring day dawned with rain and only 2°C! Luckily, I haven't brought the sensitive plants out yet. And my tomato seedlings are still inside the house. I transplanted them into a larger pots. I am sure they yearn for some sun light now because it seems to me they're now growing very slowly. As from Wednesday the weather should change. I hope. Last week I used a few warm days to do some weeding and sowing - peas and onion in the vegetable garden. But that's all. The soil is wet and unworkable again.
Every Spring I slightly panic because there is a lot of jobs to be done in the garden. The most important thing is weeding because weeds grow fast now and I have to eradicate them before they take over. And, when all of it is done, I feel like an enormous stone fell off my heart and I enjoy working in the gardens the easy way - every day.
