Forår -- Spring

     Så er foråret kommet til Uglebo. For en gangs skyld blomstrer martsviolerne i marts.Uglemor fandt de tre første med næsen i dag, da hun gravede ud til et nyt fundament til den stakkels dome.

Spring has arrived in the Owlery. The violets, by tradition supposed to bloom in March,  - is doing so this year. Today I discovered 3 of them as I was in the garden repairing my dome-shaped greenhouse. It was the smell that made me notice them, they really smell deliciously.


 


     Domen blev jo revet noget itu af stormene, men derudover var fundamentet smuldret og et par af stiverne knækket, så nu bliver den sat helt i stand igen.

My poor greenhouse was badly treated by the storms, but not only the storm. The tooth of time has been gnawing at the foundations and broken some of the wooden struts. It is in need of a total make over, and it will get it.

Uglemors bier har overlevet vinteren, og det  synes mig at de har fundet noget helt nyt at suge nektar fra:

MotherOwl's bees all survived the Winter, and they seem to have found a new source of nectar. 

Nedfaldsæble med bi  --  old apple with bee.

      Dagen sluttede med denne smukke sølvfarvede himmel.

The day ended with this beautiful silver sky.

  1. Uglemor,

    I enjoyed your photos! So glad to see spring has arrived for you at last. We are seeing signs of autumn. The leaves are already changing colour. I will have to take some photos!

    1. I will look forward to your autumn colours. It would be strange for me to combine lenten and autumnal activities and fellings. Lent is for me a spiritual springtime.

    2. Uglemor,

      Yes, I understand why you associate Lent and then Easter with spring. I was surprised (and delighted) to find this quote on other blog:

      'Lent is the autumn
      of the spiritual life,
      during which we
      gather fruit to keep us going
      for the rest of the year.
      Enrich yourselves
      with these treasures,
      which nobody can take from you and which cannot be destroyed.
      I am accustomed to say
      that we will not make Lent well unless we are determined
      to make the most of it.
      Let us, therefore, spend this Lent
      as if it were our last,
      and we will make it well.'

      St. Francis de Sales

      A link between Lent and autumn!

    3. Very beautiful. What a pity that the new Danish prayerbook just has been printed. Else I would have told my husband that this prayer had to be included.

    1. Fasten betyder måske at jeg skruer lidt ned for min e-aktivitet, men jeg holder ikke funkstille som de andre år. Og da slet ikke uden at fortælle om det. Vi har bare haft en stor fødselsdag, og almindelig forårstravlhed. Vi ses, når det bliver regnvejr igen.
