In the warm spring days we now find ourselves in (on the good days!), we spend as much time outdoors as we can – catching up on all that vitamin D we missed out on over winter, feeling the wind, watching things unfold, one petal at a time.
Days seem so much fuller in the warm months, don’t they? There is always so much to do, so much to plan for, so much to hope for. Just sitting and listening to the busy-ness of the wildlife, such as it is, around us there is also an urgent tone about it. We watch the birds gather twigs and marvel at their ingenuity in their constructions. The ants have returned with a gusto. Hoverflies are fighting over the best stretch of branch, and butterflies and bees wind their ways into our garden. All of them, and us, on their own path with their own work, weaving in and out of each others’ lives in a beautiful dance.
The sun brings with it such good energy. It seems after the longest winters there is greater joy in spring.
