Spring is on its way!

Whilst out doing a few jobs over the weekend I couldn't help but notice the blossoms on some of the trees coming out. A sign that spring is just around the corner.

Spring is my favourite season.....fresh sunny mornings, days beginning to warm up. The gardens start to wake up and treat us to bulbs and gorgeous blossoms,  and you find that lost bit of energy that winter drained away. We get to revisit our warm weather wardrobe and pack away the thermals.

Having little children means that we get to share the fun of watching them discover how nature starts coming alive again. The trees grow some 'clothes' and 'pretty jewels', and they learn how to make daisy chains and necklaces. Watching the bees and learning to stay away from them. The warm weather means no excuses for not being outside. It's a fun time of year.

Along with the new life and energy that spring brings, its also time to get busy and start spring cleaning.
So today, my plan is to start going through our wardrobes and boxes in storage and weeding out what we no longer use or need. Mainly clothes we have all outgrown.

Its quite a cleansing feeling having a clean up. And I like knowing that our pre loved clothes may be used by someone else too.

So, I best go and start spring cleaning and bundling up some bags. The weather has turned cold again so it's a perfect day to be inside. I just need to look outside to the trees with the blossom buds and be reminded that warmer weather will soon be here!
