Spring has sprung

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

I think this captures this year very well. I love Spring, and everything that goes with it. When I was a child Spring meant new ducklings and chickens to play with. Tiny bunnies would appear in the garden, ready to eat my mothers newest seedlings. In the surrounding farmland calves and lambs danced in the bright daylight. This year for us it means a tiny bundle of joy to cuddle and the prospect of more happiness to come everyday as our baby grows. For me - today brings feelings of excitement over the year to come and all it will bring.
