Blue Skies & Scents of Spring


Spring air smells and sounds so different to winter and each year I seem to forget, until it arrives again. After Winter’s dormancy, birds are training up their vocal chords and you can smell the brand new growth. Magnolia buds, Cherry Blossom, Daffodils, Hyacinths, all play a part in that sweet Spring air and then there’s one of my absolute favourites – Daphne. It’s the tiniest of flowers which could easily go unnoticed if it wasn’t for its mighty punch of fragrance that wafts along pavements with no obvious sign of where it’s coming from. Spring is clearly a time of year to take stock, and a long deep breath every now and then. Definitely food for the soul!
