Word of the Week – Brink

I decided brink is the ideal work to sum up this week as we are right on the verge of the spring/summer season.  The grass is finally turning green, my daffodils are about 4 inches high now, the weather is warming up nicely, the trees are covered in leaf buds that are about to burst open and we have only a week to wait until our first camping trip of the year.


Truth be told It’s actually quite frustrating and I feel like I’m in a constant state of suspense as I wait for it all to start.  I am longing for the days of chilling on the deck admiring my colourful garden (if the sodding chipmunks stop eating my bulbs but that’s another story!) and packing up the truck and heading off with the tent to somewhere new


We are on the brink of beach days, bike rides and barbecues for dinner, I just wish it would all hurry up and start.

    I know exactly what you mean. Every time I’ve started to enjoy the spring sunshine over the past couple of weeks it’s been replaced by wind and rain! Not long now till it gets a bit warmer though – even if Devon weather does tend to remain unpredictable… Enjoy your camping trip! x

    Blowin’ a hoolie here today, but have roses, alliums and euphorbia in bloom, everything growing like mad especially the weeds! It could all peak too soon and be over before summer starts! You’ll soon catch up.

    Oh, I’m so impatient too 🙂 We’re getting there though, at least the plants have all decided it is Spring now, even if the weather is still taking a little while to catch up!
