It’s funny really how everyone is suddenly talking about Spring. Technically Spring started back in March, though you wouldn’t have known it with the weather we had. Yesterday was the 1st May and it was almost as if the weather decided it was about time it started acting more Springlike. The sun is out, the wind is milder and despite feeling ill these last few days, I’ve definitely noticed the improvement.
As I’ve mentioned before (and even yesterday) May is my favourite month. Some of that no doubt is because my birthday is in it, my youngest daughter’s middle name is also May, but I’m sure it’s also something more than that. The may blossom on the trees, the snowdrops on the grass verges, everything looks that bit greener and that bit more alive.
I do love Spring, but I think in many ways its because it feels like the sign that Summer is coming. Granted in Britain our idea of summer isn’t really anything to get excited about, but a slight break in the grey wet days is definitely something to smile about in my book.
What do you like about Spring?
