Blog Every Day in May: Spring is Here!

“What is your favourite thing about Spring? What plans do you have to enjoy it?”

Taken on yesterday morning’s walk, the 1st May!

And by stark contrast, this was taken on this morning’s walk!

 

Spring is probably my favourite season. Well, at least equal to Autumn. At this time of year (or whenever the UK decides to be Spring-like, which seems to vary greatly there days!) I’m always wandering about thinking “what beautiful colours” and “here’s the promise of some warmer months!” And Autumn is much the same really….stunning colours, and the promise of Christmas too!

I suppose then that my favourite thing about Spring really ought to be something unique to this season, and whilst some years I’d say “I get to pack away my thermals and big knits”, at the moment there is no way I’m risking anything as bold as that! Still, it is all feeling very fresh and lush and lovely outdoors (where you have to be to really appreciate this particular season in my opinion) and so perhaps my favourite thing about Spring is that it’s finally nice enough to want to actually spend time outdoors! I love that feeling of wanting to sit out with the sun on my skin (even if it is just the skin on my face…I’ve yet to venture out with arms or legs uncovered!), perhaps even having a meal outdoors, and craving salads and barbecues and long glasses of gin.

And that’s exactly how I’m planning to enjoy the Spring….getting outdoors….walking the hound through our gorgeous local countryside….and drinking gin of course.
