There are two things I love about this time of year: Being able to show my children how green and beautiful the world around them is, and taking photographs of it.
It is so breathtakingly pretty where I live right now. It is so green and lush and the air seems to be full with portent.
Sure, it’s rained an awful lot just lately. A lot.
But the benefits far outweigh the negatives as far as I am concerned – have you seen how breathtaking the UK countryside is after a downpour?
We have been out breathing in as much of this beauty as often as we can. Come rain or shine.
And my trusty camera has been right there at my side to record it (and I’ve talked before on the wonderful benefits of taking a million photos of your children growing up!)
We discover the ‘magic’ of dock leaves
We run like the wind himself is chasing us
I know it seems depressing when the sun won’t shine and it seems to rain endlessly when spring should be heralding an explosion of good weather.
But take a look again – this time through the eyes of a child.
I promise it will look a whole lot better!
