As a new month approaches I like to look back on the last few weeks and take account of some of my favourite moments. For me April was a jewel of a month. Spring felt like it had finally arrived and my two little boys and I have already had many a morning picnic by the polytunnels. Here are some notes from my nature journal on my most treasured parts of April;

Dandelions like polka dots on the lawn.

The first tulips 

Making primrose flower essence

Longer, sun filled days

The pink sunset on the mountain

Shedding the layers and heavy coats

Handing in my manuscript

Putting the goats out to pasture

Birdsong in the  dew soaked, early morning

Getting the first suntan of the year

I’d love to hear some of yours too! Let me know in the comments below! xx
