embrace spring


ten ways I am embracing spring (in February, but whatevs)

    planting flowering bulbs in the frost-thawed soil
    lounging (& snoozing) in soft patches of sunlight
    skipping about in these pastel pink shoes
    stuffing daffodils into old milk bottles on sunny windowsills
    reading these poems by the wonderful Mary Oliver
    washing the windows so the light can flood in
    making little cardboard window boxes & tea-towel curtains for Orla’s playhouse
    weaving a wreath from soft new green saplings
    wearing this cheerful & quick new lip & cheek colour
    drinking floral-frangranced tea on the doorstep, listening to early morning birdsong

What’s your favourite way to welcome Spring?
