Though the new season doesn’t technically begin until tomorrow, it seems to have arrived a little early. The past few days have been noticeably less cold but it wasn’t until today, when I woke up to the most warm, sunny, delicious day, that I really realised. Spring is here!
This morning I sat on the lawn, under an impossibly blue sky, eating watermelon and chatting to the cat. Many trees in our street are now bursting with pink blossoms and the grass is growing so fast we can hardly keep up with it. Seeing the evidence of a new season all around me I was reminded of just how fast this year is passing by. It’s almost 9 months since we settled on our old house. Tomorrow we are getting started on the veggie patch, which at the beginning of the year seemed so far away. And in just two weeks I’ll turn 27.
Of course, there is no slowing the passage of time! So instead, we must try to make the most of right now. To wiggle our toes in the grass, smell the fruit blossoms and drink up the glorious sunshine. Because just like the one before it, this gorgeous season won’t last long.
