Walking across the playing fields today to get to work with the trees all bursting with new life, their leaves unfolding fresh greenery, and a warm sun on my face, it seems hard to believe that just a few months ago I was was trudging this very same path in thick snow. I think it’s taken the very cold winter that we’ve just had to really, truly, appreciate the Spring now that it’s arrived. In past years Spring has been arriving earlier and earlier, the winters have been milder, and the weather has been a bit samey.

I love the contrasts. I love it that you can have cold winters and hot summers and those gorgeous, changing and changeable times between (spring and autumn). It makes me happy. 🙂
