Colour Please


Signs of spring are everywhere here in Nova Scotia.


From the very drab colours of winter in the Northern Hemisphere,


we are slowly but surely seeing splotches of colour here and there around the garden.


However, the trees and shrubs are always the last to leaf-out.....


sometime in late May.


Until then I will satiate my craving with the greens of this Aloe Vera


and Cactus which are enjoying the bright sunshine indoors.




Oh yes, check out the 'GIVEAWAY' I am having at the top left just below the 'header'!

    1. Thanks Chris! Now, all you have to do is use any seven of the 'billboards' on that post and make up a poem, limerick or story....using all or some of the content of the ones you chose. Have fun and with your imagination, we better fasten our seatbelts!!! lol

  2. It appears that aloe can be healing in more ways than with it's juice. Even just it's colour helps to heal the soul.

    1. Now that is true Stew! I just like to look at it....maybe because it is so unusual and not at all indigenous to this part of the world.

    1. Martha, you won't believe this but we are bracing for a whopper of a snow storm tonight!!! So all garden things back in the shed for a few days! I think farmers call these storms 'fertilizer snow'.

  5. Never does the color green look as good as it does in spring.

    1. True enough! It seems to wake up brain pathways and everything looks differently.

  6. I'm so glad you explained! As I looked at the photos and read the text, all I kept thinking was, "I didn't know aloe vera could grow in that climate"!
