Swing open those windows, dust off those walking boots and breathe in that fresh air. The daffodils are standing up to attention so spring is well and truly here in the UK, especially Northamptonshire. Are you saving up for your next adventure? Great timing! Don’t feel glum – simply get out and about near your home. Grab your camera and head to your local park and nearby fields. That’s what I did last weekend and it really reminded me to appreciate the amazing landscapes that are right on the doorstep.
After a busy day at work, I pulled into my driveway and hopped out of the car. I started to make my way to the back gate, but something caught my eye. It made me do a double take. With no amount of exaggeration, the view made me say ‘wow’. You’ll know by now that I’m partial to an arty tree – mix in pink blossom and I’m in heaven. I think you’ll even agree on this occasion…
In fact, last week I took part in a Twitter chat called #Travelpics. You answer questions using your travel photos and it’s a chance to talk to other travellers. You don’t have to be a blogger to take part – see here for all the details of when, where and how. I saw the chat by chance on my Twitter feed, but I’ll definitely look out for it again. I really enjoyed taking part in the chat and sharing my spring pictures. My doorstep blossom image seemed to be a popular one and was included in the round up. My yellow image from my trip to Pembrokeshire was a favourite one too.
They say that you always want what you don’t have and if the usual comments from fellow travellers are anything to go by, we know that our pretty English countryside is loved. The UK is renowned for the quaint, calm green fields and fluffy sheep that dot the landscape. Spring brings cute, little lambs. I spied these adorable ones on my Sunday stroll last week – too cute! If you’re looking for a pretty walk in Northamptonshire, you can find my suggestion here.
What’s spring like where you live and how do you make the most of it? X
