Spring Has Officially Arrived ....

Hallo to you all once again.  So yesterday was the first day of Spring, and I’m certainly looking forward to it. We haven’t had a particularly hard Winter here in Devon, but I think we just all want the longer days once again.  As I write this, I’m well aware that some of my Followers will be heading into Autumn, so forgive me! 


I do think that Spring has to be one of my favourite months.  Simply because it follows the dark days of Winter, I suppose. But it’s more than that - Spring brings hope, as we see new life appearing all around us.  From the bulbs poking out of the earth, the garden gradually coming back to life, and the lambs gambolling in the fields. How can our souls and spirits not be lifted?  




You would have to be a bit of a curmudgeon if your heart wasn’t lifted by the sight of daffodils everywhere. They bring their own sunshine, don’t they? 



 The Poet, William Wordsworth, summed it up perfectly in his poem, “I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud”, also known as the daffodil poem ......



We are now in the Star Sign of Aries, and I am an Aries person - Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac.  We are supposed to be the trailblazers, although, to be honest, I’m not sure that I’ve done much trail blazing in my life.  Although, I think we always tend to think of things being done in a very outward way, with all guns blazing if you like.  But, thinking about it, things can also be done in quiet ways.  Aries are supposed to be passionate and independent, and I certainly see that in myself.  Although with regard to the independent bit, I always thought that had something to do with me being an only child.  They are also supposed to be loyal and impulsive.  I like to think that I am a loyal friend, and I am certainly impulsive!



I’m sure there are people reading this, who do not believe in such ‘nonsense’!  But I believe that there must be something that determines us from the month that we  are born.  After all, the earth is ruled by the moon and the pull of the sea, as they both wax and wane.  My mind has always been open to everything alternative, really.  It would be a foolish person to dismiss these things.




Anyway, I will leave you for now.  Thank you, as always, for taking the time to read my scribblings!  (All images today, apart from the daffodils, are courtesy of Pinterest).  Oh, and here’s a pic of my little pup, walking through the Spring flowers in my garden....

Hi Thisisme! I enjoyed your poems this morning, and it is true about the Daffodils. I don't get very many, but I love their beauty. You have hundreds of them, more than I see around here at one time!

I do read my horoscope daily, and sometimes print it out. There are many times when it refers to something that is going on in my life, and it helps to pay attention to it, even if it is hogwash! Today, my horoscope tells me that my humor is my saving grace. If I learn to relax and wait, my mind will answer most of my questions.

Benji is a real cutie! He is so inquisitive and helpful in the garden, isn't he! I am sending you best wishes for a wonderful weekend, dear Aries friend. Astrologers say that Aries and Sagittarius (that's me) have good friendship compatibility. We are both fire signs!

Take care, dear friend! ♥

Thank you for your comment, as always, my Texan friend. Your horoscope for today sounds quite relevant, I would have thought! Yes, inquisitive is a very good word for Benji. He is always poking his little nose in somewhere, and keeps me on my toes! I’m sure we would get on famously, Suzanne, should we ever meet. Wouldn’t that be fun?! Hope Scooter is doing well and I hope you’re having a good week. Look after yourself over there ❤️

Hi Jo-Anne - thank you for popping in from ‘down under’! I can well imagine that you are loving the cooler weather, and to be able to have the doors and windows open once again. Fortunately, it never gets that hot over here, even in mid Summer!
