Spring arrives suddenly in the UK. It’s wet and freezing and miserable, then suddenly one day it’s very warm, as in above +5C. Sunshine is more abundant. You notice tree buds. Daffodyls’ optimistic chubby green stalks appear out of nowhere.
Those who keep their eyes open for this subtle shift, switch to spring outfits right away. Others continue with winter heaviness for a couple of weeks more.
For me, spring truly comes when 2 things happen- sunsets move beyond 5pm and sunrises start before 7am. When this happens, the spring is here… Yay!
