Spring coming in the garden

Le printemps arrive dans le jardin

English version below the pictures

Ce vendredi après-midi, je me reposais entre deux jours de dialyse. Par la fenêtre je voyais le jardin dans la lumière d’une journée ensoleillée mais froide. Je pris ma canne et mon appareil photo pour une petite promenade dans le jardin.
Je venais de sortir de la maison quand les premiers Jacinthes m’ont souri

Hyacinthes Jacinthes

On this Friday in the afternoon I was resting between two days of dialysis . Though the window I was seeing the garden in the light of a sunny but cold day. I took my cane and my camera for a small walk in the garden.
I was just out the house when the first Jacinthes smiled to me

Quelques pas plus loin une touffe de Muscari se tenait avec modestie mais offrait au regard une magnifique couleur bleue


A few steps further a tuft of Muscari stood with modesty but offered to the eye a magnificent blue color.

Puis dans la pelouse des violettes bleues et d’autres blanches me souhaitaient la bienvenue.


Then in the lawn blue violets and others white welcomed me

Le long de la haie une rangée de primevères faisait intinceler leurs couleurs mais avec beaucoup de modestie

primeroses primevères

Along the hedge a row of primroses made their colors sparkle but with great modesty

En entrant dans le jardin potager prolongeant la pelouse j’ étais accueilli par une rangée de jonquilles et encore des primevères

row of Daffodils. Rangée de jonquilles

As I entered the vegetable garden extending the lawn, I was greeted by a row of daffodils (and more primroses).

Other Daffodils in waiting for the Narcissus autre variété de jonquilles en attendant les narcisses MF

Puis je regardais la terre nue mais labourée ( pour la moitié) . Je pensais que bientôt il faudrait planter et semer en espérant ne pas avoir la sécheresse au printemps comme l’ an passé et celui d’avant . En tout cas ces jolies fleurs pérennes m’ont réjoui le coeur et encouragé dans ma faiblesse.

Then I looked at the bare but plowed land (for half). I thought that soon we would have to plant and sow, hoping not to have the drought in the spring like last year and the one before. In any case, these pretty perennial flowers delighted my heart and encouraged me in my weakness.

    Toujours positif, Michel, joli fleurs qui reviennent chaque année jusqu’à l’infini…
    Espérant que les traitements aident,

    • Oui Stéphanie ces fleurs nous accueillent chaque année d’une façon spontanée et nous encouragent.
      Avec la dialyse on survit mais on ne peut pas guérir les reins dont la structure est complètement désorganisée
      Merci de ta fidélité.<3

    Such beautiful signs of spring in your garden, Michel! I hope the new season brings you strength and all good things!

    Much love to you, Janine and the family, ❤

    Hope your drought ends. Beautiful flower’s you have.

    I never knew the name for Muscari. We always call them my birthday flower’s because nine out of ten years they bloom where we live the first week of April.

  4. Oh Wow.. Michel, your spring flowers so way ahead of our own… We have crocus out and daffodils our Hyacinths still in tight bud.. But my primroses are in full bloom…
    Wonderful share my friend..
    I hope you and your lovely wife are well.. Lovely to once again be back in my blog and visiting again..
    Many thanks for sharing your garden
    I have lots of seed trays starting to sprout for the allotment…. Spring is truly now sprung 🙂 ❤

    How blessed you are to have the flowers help revive your energy and your good feelings after the stress of Dialysis. God is wonderful and so loving to provide such beauty…You and Janine have performed a labor of love to take care of what God has created. You make the flowers smile and in turn they give back to you cheer and healing with their beauty.
    God Bless. I think of you and pray for you. I remember how John was always ready to take a long nap when he returned from the hours with dialysis.

  6. calmkate says:

    spring brings colour and cheer to heal so many, glad you could manage to share your walk and joy with us … take care kind gent!

    Dialysis is the pits but it keeps you with us 🙂

  7. Thank you for sharing your beautiful smiling welcoming sparkling flowers with us, Michel! They are joy-bringers! 🙂 I’m so glad they bring you joy and encouragement! Isn’t nature so wonderful to do that for us!!! 🙂
    We must seek to be brave, determined, and thriving like the flowers! 🙂
    Continued and always prayers for you and your dialysis. You are not alone. You are remembered. You are cared about greatly.
    (((HUGS))) ❤ 🙂

    • It is interesting to follow the evolution of the flowers from crocus-snow drops to the present group that smiled at me yesterday. Every month brings new flowers .
      And thanks for your kind words, Carolyn. ❤

    Thanks Michel for the walk down your garden. In Pennsylvania I always loved the wild growing daffodils. They don’t grow here but my bluebonnets are now blooming.

  9. A wonderful spring post Michel! Rest well my friend.

  10. murisopsis says:

    Love that your flowers are blooming! My flowers are still sleeping…

  11. Zakiah says:

    Beautiful Hyacinths, Primroses, muscarines, daffodils and violets. Your spring has come early. Hope you have tons of flowers. Yes no draught please. Be well, rest fully, be safe and lots of love to you dear Michel.

  12. Marion says:

    So many beautiful, bright flowers to lift your spirits, Michel! ❤

  13. Annalisa says:

    Que de jolies fleurs! Ce sont les mêmes fleurs que je rencontre les (rares) fois que je vais à ma maison de campagne. Desormais on ne peut plus se déplacer de lieu à autre comme auparavant, on est en “lockdown”. Maudit virus! Je me perds toute la beauté de la floraison printanière dans mon jardin. Je suis heureuse que tu peux admirer la tienne!

  14. wissh says:

    How lovely these early signs of spring. Isn’t the first day of spring a wonderful day for a birthday? Thank you for the birthday wishes, it always makes me happy to hear from you.
    Be well my friend.
    Christine ❤️

  15. L. Marie says:

    Oh! I love your garden. So beautiful and peaceful. So pleasant to walk in, isn’t it?
    Love to you and Janine! ❤️

  16. LGail says:

    Spring gives us a hopeful feeling. Maybe a little courage. 💕 My favorite season of the year.

  17. marica0701 says:

    Lovely flowers, especially the hyacinths!

  18. It’s heartening seeing those first signs of spring. They do lift our spirits. Love, ❤️

  19. Resa says:

    Your garden is very lovely. How wonderful to see spring happening. I hope you are feeling well today! -Resa ❤

  20. KB says:

    It is like a miracle each year to see the spring flowers emerge. I planted bulbs last fall and so far snowdrops have appeared. Others are nudging through the soil, so I’ll see them soon!

  21. Eat Right Chef Louisa says:

    Bonjour Michel! These flowers in your garden are so pretty. I’m glad they give you pleasure and a sense of encouragement. Sowing seeds in your vegetable garden is something to look forward to. I hope that the weather will cooperate this year! Take good care! Hugs ❤

  22. They are absolutely gorgeous. I’m so grateful they bring you pleasure. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, E

    Hello Michel.

    You are lucky one when having a garden and that having the possibility to follow signs of different seasons. We had also in our small flower garden (1993 – 2012) Muscari! Your garden is very beautiful. In my next post, you have not seen current post, I will start to present at the end of the post one Web Cam photo and thus having possibility to see how spring is coming to Kokkola. Now there is snow.

    Thank you, Michel. Have a wonderful day, Matti

  24. Caro says:

    Bonjour Papa, oui c est la plus belle période de l annee où tout revit…espérons que nous aussi et que l on sera vite débarrassé du covid ..bonne journée à vous deux je vous embrasse bien fort carole

    • Tu as raison ce Covid finit par devenir yune sourde source d’inquiétude .
      Cet après -midi j’ ai réussi à bécher 2 mètres carrés !! Pas plus mais ce n’est déjà pas si mal !! 🙂

  25. maidyk says:

    bonsoir Michel,
    effectivement toutes ces fleurs dans les jardins font bien plaisir !
    et après une dialyse, de voir de belles choses redonnent certainement espoir !
    Ici il n’y a pas encore aucune jacinthe , et bien que nous ayons beaucoup de violettes, nous n’en avons pas de blanches… elles sont plus rares !
    bises !

  26. Julie says:

    Its lovely to get out and see all the new growth and new flowers , your garden looks wonderful as always . John and I have been busy in our little garden as we are going to have new decking put down shortly

  27. mimiwi2013 says:

    Your garden looks so wonderful already, Michel!! Living near Lake Michigan, our spring always comes later than inland. In the last few days I just noticed our daffodils coming up out of the ground—maybe 5 inches high. A couple tulip plants, too. Inland, buds are starting to open on the trees, but not here yet. Our plantings get smaller each year. Neither Ken nor I are physically able to take care of them properly anymore, so we do appreciate the perennials more and more. Know how much you and Janine enjoy your garden also! Hugs to both of you! ❤

    • I am like you both, Nancy . I love gardening but strengths start to fail ! The garden goes step to steps . Janine however is more in shape than me ! 🙂
      Take care of you both , Nancy and Ken.
      Love ❤

    Magie du Printemps et de la Nature en Liberté.
    Que de merveilles ici dans votre jardin à admirer !

    Merci du nom pour les Muscari. Très étonnant, nous connaissons tous ces jolies petites fleurs bleues depuis notre enfance et le nom nous échappe …. Maintenant on va s’appliquer et penser à toi Michel en les voyant.

    Il y a une application “plantes et fleurs et arbres” qui nous permet de raviver notre mémoire au besoin. Mais pour l’instant, nous gravons dans notre esprit “Muscari”.

    Cordiales salutations et une bonne continuation,
    bien à vous dans le Nord,

    • Merci Anne-Marie pour ce gentil commentaire . Il y a des espèces végétales en nombre infini . Il est impossible de connaître toutes les espces sauvages dans un jardin . En plus cela change d’un jardin à l’ autre selon le terrain sans parler du climat .
      Au fait avez-vous un jardin à Nideau ?
      Amitiés ❤

  29. Glad you were rested well enough to enjoy a lovely walk! Sending love and wishing you great health and happiness!

    Isn’t it wonderful how nature can be so soothing and strength-giving?

    Viva la Primavera i suoi colori e i suoi profumi🌻🌼🍀

    I think your garden must bring peace, calm, and healing for your soul. I get the same benefit from bodies of water.
