Is it any surprise we get excited about the switch in season – and the thoughts of spring paving the way for summertime joy?

Indeed, it only takes a brief walk through the park, or journey through the countryside to see nature blossoming into life.

Closer to home, even our window boxes are winking at us with baby shoots signalling the promise of pretty things to come.

To make the most of mother nature, here’s how to celebrate lighter, longer days…
