Spring, Magic is here.

I have just gotten back from being in the United States for a few weeks and everyone has spring fever.

This is the time of year when the weather get warmer, we set back our clocks as the days get longer.

 This morning a girlfriend and I needed some catching up, so we decided to have a workout walk.

There was Spring Magic all around that I could not stop taking photographs I hope you enjoy.

Here in Le Marche, everyone is busy getting their Veggie Garden into shape, it’s almost like a competition between the locals.

In the weeks before Spring neighbors began talking about what they will plant this year and of last years plantings.

First step is the turning of the soil and weeding it all out, though it is warm now, no one plants before Easter Sunday in fear of a last frost.

Below are seven overturned and weeded gardens, I was blessed to see on my walk. All off to a good start.

Just about every house her has a vegetable garden, growing your own food here is as common as drinking water, it’s a way of life.

This lady here is not doing her vegetable garden, she is doing a pleasure garden in front of her newly remodeled  home.

 

These two homes below are neighbors and always have the greenest grass and immaculate gardens. The competition is on!

This grass is always so green, how do they do it?

Just a home in our neighborhood, beautiful.

 

These are artichokes below, they grow almost wild here. First they send up an artichoke and if not harvested it will bloom into a spectacular flower.

Artichokes yummm

I just got back a few days ago from Nantucket Mass. There the signs of Spring are the coming up of daffodils everywhere, in fact in late April they have the famous Daffodil Parade of Nantucket.

Here in Italy the signs of Spring are the millions of wild roadside poppies, we also have tulips, crotons, daffodils and other bulb flowers but the poppies are Italy to me.

Rosebuds reaching for the heavens.

We have a kumquat bush plated in a pot next to the gate, it produces so many delicious kumquat’s all summer long.

Made it home and going to have a kumquat from our tree.

This is our vegetable garden, there is still lots of work to be done, but my mother-in-law works magic herself.

What a nice morning walk, I am feeling so blessed to live in such a magical place. Also I’m happy Spring is here.

    I love the level of commitment to self made produce, that’s not common in Canada anymore. New Zelanders are a fair bit better consider the soil here is so good and the growing season is very long. Australia it’s not that easy to keep a garden…we struggled in the outback to get anything to eat! It looks like such a wonderful place to live. I’m so looking forward to seeing more of your images and hearing more about the area.

      I have lived in many places on this earth and also here in Italy, but Le Marche captured my heart. It has all I need, healthy organic food by the tons, the Adriatic Sea with beaches and fish, 4 seasons (lol), people as good as the earth that is cultivated and a wonderful mountain terrain to enjoy all seasons.
