Spring swiftly approaches and today we were afforded a glimpse of what hopefully is to come. The leaf litter covering the floor of Burley Old was crisp and dry as I sank into it. I love taking the opportunity to lay out in nature, breath deeply and relax. Gazing up through the Spartan canopy as it gently swayed you knew spring was near, you could feel spring in the air, hear it in the growing tree top chorus, even smell a hint of it. I know it's only fleeting, but it wont be too long, and knowing that fills your sails and raises a smile.
