Today has finally brought the arrival of Spring! In my opinion anyway... with a temperature averaging around 10 degrees and only 4mph wind with the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky...it feels glorious! I even found myself staring at the trees today to try and catch a glimpse of the very first leaves of 2011! Unfortunately my eyesight is beyond that vision.
The arrival of spring is such a happy moment, you can finally unwrap from all of your winter layers and embrace the lovely spring weather once again, the air actually feels amazingly fresh! I plan to make the most of it until our April showers arrive.
December 2010 was actually the coldest it's ever been for the last 100 years, I can't believe it! My boyfriend in Norway would probably just laugh at that though, the temperatures he has to face are absolutely freezing compared to our minimal -9 degrees. Here's an article explaining why December was the coldest for the last 100 years.
