How we know that Spring is here

  1. The birds have started singing.
  2. Flowers are blooming everywhere.
  3. Bright green shoots are emerging from plants.
  4. Weeds have colonised our garden.
  5. The insects have emerged from their hibernation. An absolute pain.
  6. The days are getting longer.
  7. It has started to rain more frequently.
  8. We've said goodbye to our good friend, the kotatsu.
  9. We've ditched our thick winter jackets for windbreakers.
  10. We've started wearing our funky t-shirts again. In fact, Erik's wearing his bermudas again.

For the first time in a long, long time, we felt warm today.
