I told my husband earlier this week that it feels like we're having an English spring here this year.
We've had mild to cool weather, temperatures still dipping into the 30's and 40's some nights. Yesterday the high was only 66°F and the overnight low was 40°F -- perfect. :) You almost need long sleeves or a light jacket outside; that's okay with me because it will get hot soon enough, and it will stay that way, for the most part, until October.
So back to the English spring. The grass here is so green, the flowers so colorful, and the weather so mild, it reminds me of the spring we visited England. That trip was 17 years ago, and I'd love to go back. If you're a new reader of this blog, and you'd like to see pictures from our trip, here are some links to the posts.
I loved my visit to England; I'd wanted to travel there for years. After 17 years though, I can still remember how good it felt to be back home. It's so nice to see other places in this big, wide world; but I think the essence of "home" is that it's what you know, and you may not realize how much a part of you it is until you go away. Home is where your roots run deep.
No matter the season of the year, I think it's hard to beat a Carolina blue sky. For as long as it lasts this year, I'm going to enjoy an English spring right here in North Carolina.
Are you having a beautiful spring in your part of the world? If so, I hope you find time to be outside, soaking in the sights and sounds today. Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for visiting!!
