This post was first published in March 2015 but the above image is from spring 2018:
Some 15 years ago I started a little late winter or early spring ritual.
The house I lived in at that time had a terrace at the back which was well protected from wind and it already got pretty warm there at the beginning of February. One day I took my cup of tea and sat outside and just watched the snowdrops, some squirrels and listened to the birds. I so enjoyed the first time I could sit outside and have my cup of tea.
Later on, I lived in an apartment without a balcony so I didn’t have the chance to do it which I really missed. Many rented houses later I am lucky to have a step to our porch which overlooks the field in front of our house and in summer I often sit there enjoying something to drink or just to sit and ponder life.
Today was the first day that was warm enough for sitting outside. But I was a busy bee and rather did some more weeding than having my spring ritual tea mug or coffee cup. Well, I decided to keep that for Sunday after work. I only work until 12 and I can’t wait to get home and greet spring with a hopeful “cheers mate!” 😉
And how do you celebrate the coming of spring?
