I really am very lucky. I get to see things come into flower for the first time twice a year. Positano precedes Luxembourg by two months in flowering seasons. These bearded irises flowered for me while I was at Positano at Easter this year, in mid March.
These flowered in our Luxembourg garden only two weeks ago.
My husband brought back fresh peas from the garden in Positano in early May. Here in my vegetable plot they are still looking like this.
But perhaps the best surprise for me in Positano, was to see our wisteria's flower begin to open at Easter, notwithstanding all the rain that we had had. I had always just missed out coming just after the peak of flowering. Needless to say, it is only just coming to the end of its flowering in Luxembourg.
