Spring has sprung! Everywhere around me I can see new fresh green leaves, the soft colours of blossom, happy faces of daffodils, birds flying by with absurdly long twigs for nest building. And bliss, oh such bliss, the days are getting warmer and longer.
Every spring I feel a sense of relaxing just a little. It is like the muscles in my body are unclenching after trying to resist the long cold winter. Going about my everyday chores somehow seems easier when I don't have to put on a parka to go out to the clothes line and the work day seems shorter when I get to go home in daylight.
But one of my absolute favourite things at this time of year is the influx of fresh produce, notably this year being the amazing abundance of delicious strawberries! Each sweet mouthful is bursting with flavour. I can almost feel the vitamins and goodness entering my body. Much as apples and mandarins have been lovely, morning tea is suddenly a whole lot more exciting with strawberries on my plate.
What are you loving about the arrival of spring?
