We have had a lovely spring day today. It wasn't too hot. It winds weren't gusting, and we had no rain. It was just perfect.

This morning before work I tackled one minor job, cutting back the lemon grass. We all have those pruning jobs we hate. This wasn't one of them. Honestly, the smell was amazing. 

Due to the broadbeans, cloche and brasiccas in the way, I was unable to trim this any earlier with a full garden blocking its path. 

Then other than that, it was a gentle watering while my family ate dinner. Mine is still sitting in the microwave waiting for the numbness on my lower jaw to ease. No cavities, but an interesting procedure that should stop the sensitivity of that tooth. 

I actually missed those evening walks last summer. It's a chance to unwind, but also an opportunity to assess those gaps, but also enjoy watching the garden come alive. Today it was looking at the kumara which slips were grown from the tips of last years patch. It was marveling out how my wind battered strawberry popcorn was flourishing. It was noticing the first flower of my spring planting. A gherkin. And it was admiring my first red lily out.
