By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

What's your favourite thing about spring?

Spring is in the air, I can feel it, and I love it! In the UK at the moment the sun is shining, and everyone is walking around with a smile on their face.

So, it got me thinking..

What's your favourite thing about spring? Mine is seeing the flowers grow in the garden, as there is nothing there in winter at all, so seeing all of the colour is most welcome!

    Wow...that sounds beautiful. Unfortunately there's only sunny days and rainy days in my country. However, I visited another country once during the Spring season and I would say that my favourite thing about the season would be the temperature and mother nature showing off its beauty with various colours.

    It is always good to visit other countries to see the types of weather that they experience that you know nothing about. I enjoy travelling for this reason - even if the weather isn't always very pleasant to be in!

    Nature definitely helps you to relax. That's why if you look for online videos of relaxing sounds, a lot of them will be to do with things that you could listen to in the great outdoors.

    I'm still waiting for spring. When it comes, I will enjoy longer walks in the sunshine.

    Spring has just about arrived here, though we are still having some rainy days at the moment. I enjoy walks, but it isn't quite warm enough to go out without a jacket yet. That is what I am waiting for!

    I always think at the quote: "A new spring, a new beginning" Every year you see the new buds on the trees, the new blossoms and also the new lives of lambs, birds, hedgehogs. The garden who was empty comes to bloom and everything changes. And that is also the moment to do revive a human being.

    I love this time of year, because there are so many new beginnings. I think it's beautiful to see so much new life around.

    Oh, I really enjoy picnics too. I don't think I managed to have one at all last year, so I need to make more of an effort to get outside and enjoy the weather this year.
