Spring is afoot…

Winter is always too long for me …I miss the light and the cold holds me too tight in its freezing hands. I am always yearning for longer days, sunshine and warmth.The last few days, I have witnessed beautiful and hopeful changes .The first signs of Nature waking up from its long winter sleep.


In the woods near my house, snowdrops seem to always be the first to push their beautiful and happy little bell -like flowers through the hard and sometimes snow covered ground.

Their name in French is ‘perce -neige’ or ‘snow driller’  – symbol of hope and tenacity. They are the very first signs telling us that Spring is on its way and proof that Winter always turns to Spring.


The 21st March is the first day of Spring and this year, on this special day, my husband and I will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.

And I feel so fortunate because these have been 30 wonderful years together and with our two very special sons.

Also, this year will mark the beginning of a new chapter in our lives as we will be moving to the South of France making our dream come true and we will celebrate the first day of Spring at our favourite restaurant in the village where we will live.

Yes,  Spring is afoot,  and the snowdrops are reminding me that perseverance brings about new beginnings!
