Inspiration and signs of Spring

There are days when I have to get out walking to find inspiration and recharge my creative energies, Friday was one of those days. It was quite warm but the air quality wasn’t so good.

There were so many signs of Spring, not just lambs. The air was full of the smell of coconut sun tan cream, or at least that’s what the scent of gorse flowers remind me of. I associate gorse with Easter as we used to dye paste eggs with the flowers. The larch trees are coming into leaf and even the butterflies were sunning themselves.
