Spring: in sights and smells

Spring is a special season.  Not in the tree-hugging, hippie-loving sense, but because it is the season which plays host to a particularly important birthday. 

So, because birthdays are about the joy of receiving (if we’re going to be honest with ourselves), I thought I’d do a bit of giving (the free gift-kind of giving of course!) simply because this comes uncomfortably close to another well-known season of giving; the kind that puts strain on your purse. 

Who doesn’t love the sights and smells of Spring? Enjoy!

1. Spring Storms

The clouds come over and the trees turn a virulent shade of putrid green to the soundtrack of deep-throated rumbling.

2.  Swallows

The eaves above our front door are currently being rented out to the most gracious of lessees.  Beautiful and an honour? Yes!  But it turns out all new-borns are poo-making machines.  A small price to pay.

3. Mowed lawn

The tangy smell of freshly-mowed grass.

4. Fallen jacaranda flowers

The lush purple carpet at the base of the tree.  The not-so-lush lilac-brown-slush that results from driving over them in your rush to make that morning meeting.
