For the Spring Pack I compiled my own list of favourite things about Spring (see above).  I thought I’d got it covered but I was blown away by everyone’s contributions in the comments for the giveaway.  It seems that Spring brings A LOT of joy.  Hope, life, love, light, happiness, new beginnings, promise, new life were all mentioned many times. So I’ve compiled some of the comments into a definitive list of everyone’s favourite things about Spring.  You can see my own original list in the image above:

  • Leaving the house in the morning and walking home in the evening in the light
  • bird song
  • Aconites, chionadoxa, crocuses, forsythia bushes, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, primroses, wood sorrel
  • wrens nesting in flower pots
  • sleepy bumblebees
  • hanging washing out on the line
  • the smell of freshly mown grass after the first grass cut of the year
  • the first day you go out without a coat on
  • warm sun rays coming in through the window
  • dew on the grass
  • nest building activity
  • watching new fledglings emerge and find their wings
  • the skydancing of the lapwing
  • the song of the skylark
  • the hope that this summer is going to be a good one
  • long evening shadows
  • yellow
  • flowers appearing ‘like neatly tucked handkerchiefs’
  • being able to open the windows
  • buds bursting
  • stags thrashing about trying to shed their antlers
  • the weather being good enough to climb mountains again

and there were many more! There were a lot of votes for lambs, bunnies and daffodils.  You people have truly captured the joy of spring! Thanks so much!
