My favourite seasons are the transitional ones, Spring and Fall (Autumn). The weather isn’t too hot or too cold and the vegetation seems to come alive. The reds, oranges and yellows of Fall could only ever be rivalled by the pastel pinks, purples and yellows of Spring.
I love bringing home bouquets of freshly cut flowers. At the moment, there are three pink peony’s on my kitchen table. Before these, cherry blossom stems stood in their vases. Cherry blossoms, to me, just epitomise Spring. They bloomed within 24 hours and lasted a week. They smelled gorgeous and made me smile, even on the days when the clouds refused to part.
