Spot The Subtle Signs Of Spring!

Feeling a little bouncy of step?  Well it is technically spring! The proof is in this definition of the noun ‘the season after winter and before summer, in which vegetation begins to appear, in the northern hemisphere from March to May’
“in spring the garden is a feast of blossom”


Well, not sure my garden or anyone else’s is a feast of blossom just yet, but the snowdrops are through their glory days and the daffs are indeed beginning to blossom.   So, bring it on!  I don’t know about you but I cannot wait to embrace warmer sunnier days and the lighter, brighter evenings that go with!

May I suggest that you open your eyes and take note of the signs of spring.  Spot baby animals everywhere, lambs frolicking and bunnies jumping!

Are you waking up to the cheerful chirping of birds, well Spring means that they are back from their migration!

Noticed that you are walking the dog after work, thats the lighter evenings for you!

Its all there, Spring fever is official.  Have you been madly gardening or even been planning what to grow in the veggie patch,  over the weekend?  Been dreaming about having a BBQ?  Maybe you have found yourself cleaning the windows or even indulging in a spot of house purging?  Then face it,  you are in tune with nature!  Summer rolls in next so its all good!

Here are a couple of our Spring top picks.  Festoon Cafe Lights, great strung up outdoors for BBQ’s and parties!


Gorgeous mugs ring in the new season.  Stick with the theme, go for Jemima Puddleduck or Hetty Hare, great for Easter gifts too! They are selling fast.




Why not change your handbag up for the new season!  Nothing is hotter at the moment than the Vogue featured Mochila Bags, handmade in Colombia. As worn by the young royals no less!


So, you know how to spot the signs, Spring is here and as a new season creeps in, we subtly adapt too.   Seasons are good for us, they stir aspirations within us, encourage us to recreate, procreate and even house titivate!  We re organise the nest, clean the nest and preen and adorn ourselves with the latest fashions!

Why not ‘kick ass’ this new season, this Spring, and use that renewed energy and vigour to propel you and yours forward ……….

We would love to hear your comments and thoughts.
