Why we love spring…

We can’t believe it is March already! Spring is finally springing and we can’t help but get excited. The sun is shining, the skylarks are singing,  the layers of extra clothing are starting to thin down and there are blossoms on the trees. I don’t know about you but we feel like spring has taken an age to get here and we are so pleased it has finally arrived.  Here are some of the reasons we love the arrival of spring…..

The days get longer meaning we get more sunshine! We feel more energetic and there seems to suddenly become more time for play, whether that is just time to sit and relax in the garden or get out on a family walk.

We get to start spotting wildlife we haven’t seen for a whole winter. We have already spotted midges in the early evening which means the bats will soon be out gorging after a winter snoozing. Hedgehogs will be sniffling around the garden again and we get to coo over the ducklings at the duck pond.

The world suddenly seems colourful again! Winter has been a dreary mix of grey and brown and we haven’t even had a sniff of the white stuff this year. Spring is full of yellows and purples, greens and blues. Enough to put a spring in anyone’s step.

Easter is nearly here which means a nice long break with the kids, lots of outdoor play and of course lots of chocolate!

To show our excitement and to celebrate the arrival of spring we have just brought in a brand new set of waterproofs from the Danish rainwear specialists Mikk-line.

Perfect for a rainy spring day of play.

  1. I love the promise of long sunny days that spring brings. Even if it is a wet and cold day you know better weather is just around the corner. I saw my first bumble bee of the year yesterday, I was strangely excited!

    1. I actually shedded my fleece whilst walking yesterday, lovely to wear short sleeves for the first time this year!
