Spring Forward

Pink and white blossom add splashes of colour to the countryside

Wild flowers
This weekend we put the clocks forward an hour and so it will really feel  that Spring has arrived .I love this time of year . There is so much colour in the countryside, big fluffy splashes of white and pink blossom dotted about in the hedgerows and woods, the bright sunlight dappling the grass and the buds slowly unfurling on the trees. Today the air was especially clear and terse and it was a great pleasure to breathe deeply.The sky was beautiful , clear and blue and there was a spectacular sunset. All day long I was aware of the birdsong sounding so happy to be back, and tonight the stars sparkle and twinkle .

It is on days like this, when all of Nature seems to be working in such harmony that you feel might have inspired this lovely poem by Robert Browning

The year's at the spring,
And the day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing,
the snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven-
All's right with the world!

a beautiful sunset at the end of a lovely spring day
