Let’s Celebrate SPRING!

Let’s Celebrate SPRING!

What’s your favourite thing about the new season? It’s a season that’s so full of life, growth and beauty to discover and share with our kids.

There are so many awesome things about spring, but these are my personal top 5:

Warmer Weather

We can say goodbye to the icy winter and enjoy a more moderate transition before a hot summer kicks in.

Blossoms & New Shoots

Trees begin to blossom and beautiful colours brighten the landscape. New leaf shoots emerge and the grass begins to turn green once again.

More Daylight

The days are naturally becoming longer and we also turn the clocks back an hour following the Spring equinox.

Happiness

After a dreary winter, sunlight is the best remedy! Sun exposure increases the release of serotonin in the brain, which boosts the mood. Sunlight also reduces melatonin during the day and increases it at night to allow for a better night’s sleep.

Fresh Spring Produce

Oh yum…. so many of our favourite fruits & vegetables start to come into abundance right now! Keep your eyes open for these varieties in particular:

Apple Banana Grapefruit
Honeydew Melon Lemon Mandarin
Mulberry Orange Pineapple
Strawberry Tangelo Watermelon
Artichoke Asparagus Beansprout
Beetroot Broccoli Brussels Sprout
Cabbage Carrot Cauliflower
Fennel Leek Mushrooms
Onion Parsnip Peas
Rhubarb Silverbeet Spinach
Sweet Potato Turnip Zucchini

 

Enjoy!
