Nature at its best...Springtime

Spring is officially here!! I am definitely a Spring body- all geared up and ready to get my home and garden in order. How far back does it go- this internal clock of mine?
It’s my theory that this type of Spring readiness and feeling that so many of us share comes from ancestral memories- a sort of 'collective unconscious'. An internal seasonal clock going back to a time when we were governed by them, taking note of when to plant, harvest, hunt etc.
The lengthening days spur people on to do things. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature’s awakening? With the sun shining today and fresh crisp breeze- well, it's just the perfect day for Spring to arrive!
I’m away to make a start ;)
Bests all.

Spring Cleaning

March bustles in on windy feet And sweeps my doorstep and my street. She washes and cleans with pounding rains, Scrubbing the earth of winter stains. She shakes the grime from carpet green Till naught but fresh new blades are seen. Then, house in order, all neat as a pin, She ushers gentle springtime in.

May your energy and enthusiasm last all Spring .... or at least until you've completed your Spring cleaning ....lol.

Glad to hear that you're enjoying the sunshine and gentle breezes after your northern winter. You no doubt look forward to them in the same way that we look forward to rain. Strange, isn't it?
