Spring is here and it is wonderful. All the cherry blossoms are blooming, daffodils are everywhere and the sun is even shining, you can tell as people here are finally walking about with no coats. The past week or two have been a flourish of enjoying this good weather, celebrating my birthday and visiting some delightful art work at the local exhibitions. I spent my birthday at a local zoo with my boyfriend and a few friends, it was great to do something a little different and the animals were all so relaxed in the sunshine. I loved seeing a little tiger cub that was only born last year watching a frog in a pond in its enclosure. I hope the rest of Spring will be as colourful, fresh and bright.
