It's that time of year when the leaves begin to pop out from branched buds to wave a welcome as you approach. Shy bulb flowers start to show their faces.
I love the way you arrive in a cloud of blossom, bearing armfuls of colourful flowers and a warm sunny smile.
Your friends, the birds and butterflies, are always close on your heels and soon it's one big happy party complete with lively bird song and heavenly scented breezes.
Even the sun stays up later and later to join in the fun.
Dear Spring, I'm so happy that you've come to visit us again.
Happy flowers to everyone!
