oh, hello spring!

March 20, 2017 5:41pm CST
I have a love/hate relationship with spring. I love it because of the colours it brings. Winter tends to be grey and dull, but then spring starts to subtly move in, sneaking a few petals of yellow here, a smattering of beautiful pink cherry blossom there, and creating a blanket of the greenest green you ever did see. The whole world suddenly erupts in brightness. Frisky lambs frolic in the fields. Birds become chirpier in the morning. It's lighter when I leave home, and still light-ish when I return in the evening. And of course, there is always the promise of chocolate. But I also hate spring. It's too temperamental. One day it insists you wear a t-shirt and very little else. The very next day it brings forth scarf, gloves and woolly hat weather. Should I wear a coat, or shouldn't I wear a coat?! I just don't know. The sun does shine brightly in the blue sky, but that doesn't mean it's warm. Spring also takes away the spellbinding sunrises that share my morning bus journey in February. The awesomeness of a pink-skied world is lost to me for a fair few months. Hate is a very strong word. Less hate, more frustration. But love/frustration relationship just sounds daft. Spring will never fill my heart with as much desire as the crunchy orangeness of autumn, but it will for ever come a very close second.

I like more the term frustrating. I agree Spring is frustrating, yesterday it was beautiful, today is grey, cold, it rains and it's not very good for the spirit.

Spring is like an hormonal teenager, full of both moodiness and laughter in equal measures!

I do prefer spring to autumn however the weather is changeable. Last week I was in short sleeves and now it's grey and cold again. I am looking forward to light nights and Easter eggs.

One day last week you would have thought it was the height of British summer, the amount of short sleeves there were!

@Poppylicious It was beautiful and were so lucky with the weather when we went away last week. Here is a photo of people enjoying the good weather.

@Gillygirl That's probably the only evidence we'll have of summer this year!

@poppylicious There's little as mournfully joyous as a grey dawn streaked with pinks and apricots.

I love darkness, Christmas, and cosy nights in front of the telly. Depending on my mood it can sometimes be my favourite season. Summer is the one season I could never call my favourite, except for the day my birthday falls on!
