Dear Spring...

Dear Spring,

Please come soon. I miss you. A lot.

This time last year, this was the birch tree in our garden. Tiny little leaves all over it. Today it is covered in frost and snow. I usually find the way people in England react to snow quite amusing but this is one of the rare occasions I have to say I agree with the general consensus 'No more snow please!'

March is usually a glorious month in England, even here up north. I love spring. The sun is warm. Crocuses, tulips and daffodils are blooming. The whole place is in stir with the excitement of warm spring days. Birds building nests and fruit trees blossoming.

Not this year. It is freezing. At least the high winds have calmed down so it is not as arctic as it was last weekend but still - I want to see the sun. Now.

One of the old boys in the allotment told my friend that the best thing to do is to sow everything in the first week of March and hope for the best. This year the ground has been pretty much frozen all March so there are no seeds in yet. This year I'll sow them when the sun comes out and hope for the best.

I want to see little seedlings growing on the allotment. I want to see the flurry of falling blossom rather than yet another snowflake.

So Spring, if you get my letter please hurry up!!!

Yours sincerely,
