At last: the clocks have gone forward, and "British Summer Time"is here!! I don't know why but each year it just amazes and excites me to realise how much difference one extra hour of daylight makes :)
It is such a relief to hear the birds releasing their songs at the first hint of dawn, and right up until the sun has set, no longer hindered by the threat of the cold. It is so good to be able to head out without a coat on, even despite the constant risk of heavy showers! The temperature is rising, the trees are looking less and less bare, and, as with each year around this time, the air is fragrant with promise and hope. Boy do I love this season!!!
