It's here - put a SPRING in your step!
Yippee, it is here, Spring arrived today!
There is something about this beautiful season, the blossoms on the tree's, the birds starting to chirp a little earlier in the morning (not always so happy about that one), beautiful sunshine with a lot more warmth to it, social bbq catch ups............and the list goes on.
You awaken feeling so much better when the sun is shining, it means we don't have to be stuck indoors as much.
We celebrated the beginning of Spring by having a coffee on the deck at a cafe called Daisy's in Sorrento. I highly recommend this place, the views of the bay are to die for. You could sit there for ages just watching the world go by. This place used to be known as Over Easy - it now has new owners and has been revamped with a hit of Melbourne coffee culture to it. FINALLY we have somewhere in Sorrento which makes a fantastic coffee!!!!
We then wandered the streets checking out the beautiful houses. There is still so many undiscovered nooks and crannies that we are yet to explore.
Will then had to head off to work, so I ventured out into the garden. It was serene, where we live, we have hardly any permanent neighbours. I love a spot of gardening, especially when the sun is shining. I find it therapeutic, weird I know!
Once I had picked Cooper up from creche in the afternoon, I took a drive up to the apple orchard in Red Hill. This drive is always peaceful, it reminds me of driving through the Dandenongs. The sun was glistening through the tree's, I felt as though I was a part of a Hollywood film set for a romantic comedy!
What a beautiful start to Spring......roll on sunshine and good times with family and friends.
How did you spend the first day of Spring?
