Spring has almost sprung!
Wednesday heralds the official start to spring – the vernal equinox.
The vernal equinox denotes the two moments in the year when the sun is exactly above the equator and day and night are of equal length.
Spring signifies new life and, in particular, when flowers really begin to bloom again. For a celebration of spring flora there are several shows that you can visit.
Enjoy the splendour of the camelia at the Camelia Show, Chiswick House and Gardens. There’s also the RHS Orchid Show & Plant Fair from the 8–10 April. And from the 25–28 April you can visit the Harrogate Spring Flower Show.
I’m also looking forward to the end of April when local woodlands are flooded with carpets of delicate, perfumed bluebells – a sight that always makes me feel young again.
With its delicate watercolour blooms, if you love flowers, you will adore this dinnerware set from M&S.
