I love the beginning of spring. Every day, the world grows a little more colourful.
It’s a time of contrasts – when the skeletons of trees tower up into the sky and oceans of tiny flowers set the ground alight at their roots.
And it’s a time to be outside, witnessing the world as it slowly comes to life.
With this in mind, yesterday I headed to the gardens at Kingston Lacy. It’s a place where spring springs beautifully (and just a tiny bit magically).
There are flowers blooming everywhere, from avenues lined with cheery daffodils to woodlands filled with bright camellias.
Underneath, the moss covered earth was sprinkled with pink petals.
And above, the sky was silver.
Mum and I had to be careful on our trip – monsters hid in unexpected places, lying in wait for unsuspecting visitors…
And some looked very hungry indeed.
But thankfully, we made it home to tell the tale!
