Day 245/366

First day of spring and the sun shone.
The sun shone even though it snowed last night.
The sky gleamed blue, the wind slowed to a breeze and the sun shone some more.
We slept longer than usual then drank coffee made with freshly roasted and ground beans.
We visited the growers’ markets, purchased fresh fruit, newly harvested vegetables, spring lamb and organic poultry from local farmers.
We marvelled at the splendid lemon scented gums and sat with Daughter and Grand Daughter and drank more coffee.
We planted shrubs in the garden while the sun continued to shine.
When the sun retired we dined on succulent roast chicken, savoury roast vegetables and finished off the meal with our favourite vanilla ice cream.
How did you celebrate the first day of Spring?
