5 Things To Do This Spring

I know I say this about every season, but I think that Spring is my favourite time of the year. The sky is blue, the flowers are blossoming and the layers of coats are starting to come off. Today I thought I'd share with you some of the things I like to do in the Springtime and I hope it gives you a few ideas. 

1. Go to a lambing weekend | My lamb obsession this year has been a bit OTT and although the lambing season is nearly over where I come from, you can still visit several farms to feed and hold the lambs. I think it's safe to say that most of my recent photographs that I have been snapping have involved a lamb.

2. Watch the sunset in the countryside | I'm quite lucky as the Chiltern Hills are right on my doorstep meaning I get to see stunning sunsets on a regular basis. Lately,  I have been exploring the countryside much more, finding hidden gems in my county and the surrounding areas. If you don't have any wide open spaces near you, then just go out to a park, explore and snap away!  

3. Find a cherry blossom tree | Nothing says Spring like a cherry blossom tree on a crisp, bright morning. Some of the best are situated in the most unlikely places, but all the trees have bloomed now so they're hard to miss. 

4. Eat seasonal fruit and vegetables | Cauliflower, asparagus and purple sprouting broccoli are some of the many foods that are in season in Spring. Although I tend to eat a lot of fruit and veg throughout the year, I like to explore and add a wide variety of in season produce to my meals. Farmers markets are a great way to source your own veggies, but I can't wait until the pick-your-own farms are back open. 

5. Pick up a bunch of flowers for indoors | Although peony season isn't quite here yet, I have been enjoying having a few bunches of flowers dotted around the flat to add colour and bring a bit of nature into the home. Asda and Morrisons are two of my go-to places for flowers are they are cheap, yet cheerful and last very well. 

What have you been up to this Spring?
