Spring is here, at least according to the calendar, and with it the desire to wear something new, tired of the same old boots and puffa jacket, winter’s uniform of black and grey.
It seems the earth feels the same way. Perhaps that’s why spring is so gorgeous, the world clothed in blossom and wildflowers and bright green, buds blooming wherever they get the chance, the sky washed clean clear blue, light like pale golden wine slanting through the clouds.
I realise it’s not Spring everywhere. In Australia, where I used to live, autumn is in full glow, the nights growing cool though the days are still warm, grapes ripening on the hillsides, harvest bounty to be had before winter’s chill arrives. And it does, believe it or not – it was cold enough for frost where we lived down south, the ocean icy with currents from the Antarctic, winter storms pounding the jagged coast.
And so the seasons turn. Happy Spring (or Autumn), everyone!
Happy spring, Helen 🙂
Thanks Esther, and the same to you 🙂
Yet another lovely photo. We danced with summer last week and then was reminded of winter of the weekend. It must be spring.
Thanks, Allie 🙂 Yes, the weather is all over the place – just when you think you can put your coat away, the temperature plummets. No wonder we all get sick this time of year.
Happy thingummy whatever it is.
😀 And also to you
WOW. It almost looks like the trees are floating in magic
Thank you – that’s a beautiful way to describe it 🙂 The woods were almost deserted and the bluebells smelt amazing, so it was definitely magical.
Happy spring to you too! I welcomed the new season along the French west coast, under the wind 😉 but it was a new and lovely experience!
You describe Autumn in Australia so beautifully, I now want to visit according to the season…
Autumn is (at least in my opinion), the best time to visit – the days and the water are still warm, but the oppressive heat of summer is gone.
And Spring on the west coast of France sounds glorious, glad to hear you are enjoying yourself xx
The days and nights are cooling here and I want it to be Spring again! Lucky you! x
Oh, I think Autumn the best time of year in Australia! So lucky you, too 🙂
Although I’ll be very glad to see an end to the dull gray weather we’ve been having here – feels like I’ve been wearing the same outfit for about six months!
