The first day of spring seems always to be such a relief – after gloomy cold days sunbeams finally come up in the cloudless blue sky. Freshness and rebirth. On a lovely day like this it is surely a folly to stay in! Take your family, friend or pet for a walk to a park or to the woods. A picnic or just a sit with an apple on the fresh green grass – you’ll be delighted ! Oh yes, and flowers! Lots of flowers everywhere! Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “the Earth laughs in flowers”, so go and share with nature this moment of joy.
