With the passing of the spring equinox here in the UK, the days are finally becoming longer as the sun is taking more time to rise and set. Although the recent stint of snow may have you believe we are still in the depths of winter, the special time of year has arrived where we can allow ourselves to look forward to the adventures awaiting us during the warmer months. If the cold and dark lull of winter has led you to forget all of the reasons why you love this time of year, don’t worry, as we’ve put together a handy list of just some of the fantastic things this season brings!
It may be a while yet before you can leave your coats and gloves at home, but it is not too far away! Rearrange your wardrobes and get your summer clothes out, as you’ll soon be saying hello to shorts and t-shirts and goodbye to your winter jackets and jeans!
The brief glimpses we catch of the warming rays in winter just isn’t enough. Let us welcome spring and the sunshine it promises us. Not only does the nicer weather improve our wellbeing, but it also allows for us to have many more outdoor adventures. The longer and slightly warmer days are perfect for exploring, whether that’s enjoying a walk along the beach or packing up a picnic and dining al fresco, the adventures are limitless when there is a little sunshine on our side!
Travelling to work and getting home from work in the dark can be a drag! The start of spring is the definitive moment that this is over. You’ll be able to open your curtains in the morning while you are getting ready and be greeted by the rays, and what’s even better, is that when you’ve finished a hard day, you still have some daylight left to enjoy yourselves.
Many of you may have noticed and have been filling the vases in your house with one of the first signs of spring, the daffodil. The first time in the year when you see the green shoots and illuminating yellow flowers, a smile on your face is likely to appear. Whether they are covered in snow or basking in the sunshine, they’re a beacon of the beautiful days ahead!
The hedgerows aren’t the only thing to be coming alive with life, as spring lambs and cute calves dot the landscape, as well as baby bunnies just in time for Easter!
Fresh Air and a Clean House
The big spring clean is upon us, and although we can often resent doing it, the rewards when you’re finished will more than outweigh it! Tidying your home and arranging it for the warmer months ahead can bring a sense of clarity and calm. Just remember, it always gets worse before it gets better.
Welcome the warmer and fresh spring air in your home by opening your windows on the nicer days. With the scent of the newly budding plants and grasses, you’ll feel refreshed for doing so!
