5 Things I Loved About Spring

It's no secret that Autumn is definitely my favourite season but I do enjoy Spring too. Everything changes and people seem much happier. Maybe because Summer is on it's way?

I thought I'd share my 5 favourite things I enjoyed during Spring.

 
1. My most favourite thing is definitely the scenery and flowers. We have such a beautiful view to the front of where we live. I love opening my balcony door and seeing all of the pretty flowers and plants in full bloom. The trees begin to flower and blossom and everything looks so pretty and colourful. I love my home filled with gorgeous flowers. Especially Gebera's, Tulips and Gyp. They can lift your mood instantly and make the place look so fresh.

                                        

2. Sleeping with the windows open. I love changing my bed sheets, opening my window and climbing into bed. There's nothing more satisfying than a cool breeze coming in during a warm night. The smell of the freshly cut grass and the pitter patter rain drops during the April showers. It's definitely a sense of comfort and I always have such a good nights sleep.

 
3. Ducklings. We have a large pond just outside our home. We often feed the ducks and swans, it's so cute watching them waddle over with their families. During Spring we always get new fluffy friends who stay with their parents until the end of Winter, she then chases them away and starts the process again. I absolutely love seeing them and always look forward to it during May.

                                     

4. Hanging my washing on the line. I honestly don't think there's anything better than clothes that have been dried on the washing line. The smell, the feel, everything! I was so excited when we had our first ''good drying day''. Now I feel really old and boring but like they say, it's the simple things in life.

5. Last but not least... I find it much easier to ''diet'' or eat healthy during Spring and Summer. The warmer months I tend to comfort eat and pile my plate up with yummy get warm dishes like casseroles and stews. I'm often cold, wet and miserable to often visit the takeaway. During the warmer months I find it much easier to stay motivated and grab a piece of fruit or knock up a salad. I never want something too big or heavy when it's warmer.




A bonus love of mine is fragrance. Everyone knows my huge love of candles. Come Spring/Summer I always have a big candle haul and stock up of clean, fresh and fruity scents rather than the warm and cosy ones I enjoy the colder months.

I've recently been enjoying Sweet Cucumber, Apple Custard and Fresh linen from Crystal Cole Candles - her wax melts are amazing and last so long.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my loves of Spring, I'd love to hear what you enjoyed during Spring.

  1. I love little duckies as well. I grew up by a farm when I was younger so imagine my delight when I ended up working somewhere in London that had its own farm and yes there were cute little duckies as well xx

  3. The house I am in at the minute has no area to hang out the washing and it's certainly a spring trait I miss! I also love to sleep with the windows open to! Cool, refreshing and smelling fresh is a great benefit to spring!

    1. You don't realise how much you depend and appreciate the smalls things until you no longer have access to them

  4. I tried to pinpoint which point I like best but they are all valid! You especially hit it on the head with the last one. With beachbody season on the horizon and the pleasant temps of spring, it's the perfect time to get into shape.
