Daydreams: Spring is Here!
Spring has finally arrived! We walk through fields of wildflowers with Elfy Scott and contemplate what the new season will bring…
The beginning of spring is unquestionably the most magnificent period of the year. We cast off the oppressive cloak of winter’s overcast days, incessant rains and too-many-layers and burst into weeks of graduating optimism. The sunlight begins to draw out further into our evenings and a drift of summer scents become ever more apparent. Our bodies are more readily exposed to the sunlight and we stretch our legs in the renewed warmth.
Long drives through luminescent green country are interspersed with flares of native flora signalling a departure from the cold stagnation and hordes of bandy-legged calves trotting aside their mums. To my mind, spring is not so much a season as it is a feeling – of new beginnings, of cleaner houses and burgeoning adventures, of feverish plans for summer and renewed energy within myself. The September vernal equinox translates to a new birth for our walk of the planet – a new birth of creatures, mind, and soul.
