The joys of springtime

Spring has well and truly sprung here in the UK! It's a bit chilly and overcast today, but we've had a couple of weeks of gorgeous sunshine and blue skies which has been very welcome after such a cold winter.

The change in the light is wonderful (not least because it makes it so much easier to take photos!) but mostly I love the arrival of spring because it gets me thinking about colour.

I want to wear all the bright colourful patterned things in my wardrobe after a winter bundled up in black and dark woollen sweaters... and the vibrant colours of the spring flowers provide lots of inspiration when I'm crafting.

We don't have a garden to enjoy, but these hyacinths are currently making my whole house smell quite delicious!

Lovely flowers. Spring is great for inspiration. It's always nicer to do things when it is warm, and I don't want to spend every minute wrapped in a blanket
