This week so far has left me feeling a lot brighter and ready to tackle the days ahead with the return of the sun, and flowers and plants blooming along the hedgerows. The birds are chirping away outside, the sky has got a lovely shade of blue about it and the clouds are all puffy and white. I do love this time of year.
The Daffodils have got me feeling happy and sunny! I love how each season has it's own set of colours and while I admire and love the crisp, frostiness of winter around Christmas time, I am always longing for the bright blues, yellows and greens of spring and summer once the celebrations have passed, so this is definitely one of the my favourite times of the year.
I am very glad to have these bright blue skies back again.
These little ones are adorable.
All of the sheep seem to have had their lambs now in the field near our house, and they're already growing quite quickly too! I definitely think that there is a part of me that wants to be a farmer or own a little smallholding of my own. It's probably not the most glamorous thing I should be after at 24 but I love watching them bounce about in the fields!
Flaming oranges and reds signalling new life coming back to the garden plants.
Buds budding away soon to open - I always get excited and know that soon it won't be long until there are blossoms on the trees and that lovely sheen of green on the branches in a couple of months.
I also love the way that the bare branches lead to some interesting shapes cast on the ground when the sun's out to play - they're like long, bony hands, like something out of a fairytale.
I was also really happy to get out and be strolling into town with the sky a nice blue behind those clouds and the River Derwent much more calm than I'd previously seen in winter. What a difference a few weeks makes when the seasons start to change!
I am definitely feeling ready for the warmer months!
I'm also looking forward to Earth House which is this Saturday, the 28th March at 8:30pm and to take part all you need to do is turn your lights off for an hour! If you want to find out more and what's it's all about, here is a link to the WWF's site here.
Hope you're all having a lovely week!
