Put A Spring In Your Step
So February has just begun and my thoughts have already started to turn to Spring. Christmas and New Year seem to have happened a long long time ago - it may have only been one full Calendar month ago but January has dragged in! I am looking forward to Spring. I am looking forward to a (slight) rise in temperature. I am looking forward to the sun actually being out for more hours than it is now. Spring has a certain hold on me, one that reminds me that new things are possible.
Ironically though, as I work as a gardener Spring is actually a season that (work wise) doesn't really exist as we tend to split the work in to, what in essence is, Summer and Winter. For us, Summer starts on the 1st of April and end on the 31st of October. Just to be clear on the definition - Summer is classed as grass cutting season. As I currently sit here composing this post there is only two months until the start of the grass cutting season, but my mind is mostly pre-occupied with what happens between now and then - the days getting 'longer', the sun starting to come out, the temperature increasing etc.
Oh and not forgetting the flowers starting to come out too.
