Spring has Sprung


Even though the sky is grey, the air damp and the ground is wet, I found my sign that SPRING has definitely arrived! I went into the garden today to check things out and try to do a bit of clean up, but wasn't very successful as the ground is just too wet and soggy to be walking all over it right now. What I did find though, was my own little rays of sunshine, my natural sign that Spring is here with us, even if it doesn't quite feel like it!


I love this time of year, when everything starts to bud. It gives a sense of all that will be new and leaves me hopeful for warmer temperatures and sunshine! I love the vast array of colours that come with Spring and can't help but find lots of inspiration right in my own backyard.

With Spring's arrival, it means new beginnings, not only in nature, but in myself as well. I have set goals for myself this year, and with self determination and probably some hard work, I will do my best to reach those goals. There are so many things that I would like to change, and now is the time to really start working on it. It is a time to get back more time for all the things that I like to do, and find a certain balance with everything. I am itching to get outdoors and spend some time in the garden, where I can be closer with nature, and reflect about all the things that are important.

Hey Sass - great work on the blog - I don't even have one! I would never keep it up to date, nor do I have anything important to say to people....
