It’s exactly one week until the official start of spring and I can smell it in the air.
On Saturday we went to Clifton in Bristol for a mooch about, and sat outside to have a cup of tea and a piece of salted caramel brownie. Sure, we had coats on, and fiancé had a stylish flat cap, but we were outside nonetheless. It was lovely. The sky was just that little bit hazy, like the very beginnings of a hot summer’s day.
We went for a look in Papersmiths, the achingly cool stationery shop that’s opened recently in Clifton, and I looked around at all of the things I would take pictures of for Instagram, if only I was a little better at photography and not a little afraid to start taking pictures in somewhere so clearly out of my league style wise.
Back outside, after I had swooned for a while over a particularly expensive but wonderfully shaped and shiny pair of scissors, we walked around to a junk shop we both like. Opposite was a florists, and as technically I was in the street rather than in a shop, I felt brave enough to take some pictures. These for me sum up just how much I’m looking forward to spring.
What are you most looking forward to about spring?
