The birth of Spring has me spellbound; the burst of colourful blooms, the scent of dewy grass, the angelic bird song…
…so pure and joy-filled – the vibrance of Spring has a magical way of making our spirit dance and our hearts sing.
Spring is when life is alive in everything.
What Spring delights are you encountering in your neck of the woods? Are you heading into Autumn? No matter what the season – nature play is every day!

I love the blossom trees, my little Tweed fairy seemed very much at home in the peach and cherry blossoms. The blossom trees symbolize hope and beauty and new beginnings which I wish for you all this Spring, love and peace Marghanita x
