Spring is in the Air

This is one of my favourite times of year. After months of short, cold, grey days, it’s so energizing to see the sun more and more and for longer stretches of time.

It’s so easy to go into hibernation during the winter months when you work from home, especially if you’re inclined to introversion as it is. But once the spring comes, who can resist setting work aside, even for half an hour, to get out and enjoy the fresh air?

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;

To-day the glint of green is there;

Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;

I know no thing so wondrous fair,

No miracle so strangely rare.

I wonder what will next be there!


L.H. Bailey, American horticulturist, botanist and cofounder of the American Society for Horticultural Science (1858-1954)

    Oh, how I LOVE spring! It’s a magical time of year. And especially when the sun is shining and the blooms are blooming, I feel compelled to get outside and walk…drink it all in.

    “who can resist setting work aside, even for half an hour, to get out and enjoy the fresh air?”

    Yep, I definitely agree with this!

    I’m not sure which is my favorite season, however, as it seems like they all mostly have pros and cons. Not too fond of the hot summer heat, however.
