Spring is in the air!
I don’t know about you, but I am soooo done with winter! And these past few days have been so fantastic spring-like that I would die to have to go back to rain and cold. As we speak the sun is shining and the temperature is a mild 10˚C. Not warm yet but if you hide from the wind behind a fence or in the back of the garden it is sooo good! Yesterday I pulled a chair out and enjoyed those first rays of sunlight. I absorbed those rays of sunlight!
Don’t get me wrong: I am a seasons girl. I would hate to live in a country where there would be no cold or no rain and just endless summer. Nice for a few months but than I begin to long for the embrace of long winter nights. Huddling by the fire, lazy sunday mornings in bed (because it is too cold to get out) and yes, even storm and rain. You know that moment when you step outside at the end of summer and you can smell that autumn is around the corner? It’s the same with spring. Never for summer or winter, but you can smell autumn and spring. And right now; I can smell spring!
The first flowers are appearing so fingers crossed we do not get another cold period killing all the baby blooms… That happened last year as well around this time and we got snow and -10˚C in the middle of March! Fingers crossed that will not happen this time.
