Spring and the zesty urge to create!



Spring is on its way and with it comes that surge of energy and hope – the zesty urge to create something new.  Daffs are opening, crocuses are spreading their bright faces towards that strange yellow object in the sky that we haven’t seen for so long, and in the pond – Frog Lurve is going on.

As the days lengthen and grow warmer, we humans too feel the urge for renewal and growth, we frantically clean our houses as they have never been cleaned before (since last spring anyway) and if the estate agents’ boards are anything to go by, this is the time of year when we suddenly have the desire to move on to pastures new and start something fresh.  We are full of hope and excitement at the possibilities the year ahead holds.

So let’s get out there and try something new!  Make the most of this burst of energy and create, discover, try out and experience.  Sign up for a class.  Meet friends.  Go places, do things you haven’t done before.  Now is the time to expand those  horizons and enjoy life.

Looking ahead – surely it will be Spring soon?



Loveliest of trees, the cherry now

Is hung with blooms along the bough,

And stands about the woodland ride

Wearing white for Eastertide.


Now, of my threescore years and ten,

Twenty will not come again,

And take from seventy springs a score,

It only leaves me fifty more.


And since to look at things in bloom

Fifty springs are little room,

About the woodlands I will go

To see the cherry hung with snow.
