It’s finally Spring! The sun is still in the sky when I leave work, the daffodils I planted have flowered and there’s a promise in the air that warmth is right around the corner.
So I thought I’d share 3 good things Spring has brought so far apart from increased vitamin D and the ability to be in the garden past 4.30pm.
1) Doing Things
I don’t know about you but Spring makes me want to do stuff. Winter makes me want to stay in under a blanket with a hot drink, but Spring is for being outside and seeing friends and generally Doing Things.
Most notably yesterday I went to Jump In in Walsall, which is a huge trampoline park, with mates I hadn’t seen in ages. It was great fun though I am now hobbling round due to my lack of fitness and inability to jump successfully from one trampoline to another.
There’s some major gardening going on at my house. We’ve been digging up the lawn to redesign the front garden. There’ll be a fuller post about it when it’s all done.

There’s lots of seedlings near various windows and my hands are soil lined most weekends.
Fun fact: gardening is hard work and probably shouldn’t be attempted after trampolining.
3) Healthy Eating
Winter is for hot stodge. Spring welcomes in a variety of deliciousness that extends past pies, curries and stews.
That’s 7 types of veg right there
Green is an important colour
All the veg and all the deliciousness you could want when it starts getting warmer and fresher and lovelier.
All in all, Spring is shaping up to be a great time of year. I’m looking forward to new adventures, new food and a great looking garden. What are you looking forward to this Spring?
