April Showers Bring May Flowers
April is a time when rain comes in to wash away all the remaining snow and grime left from winter, and nurtures all the seedlings getting ready to bloom in your gardens. Make sure to take time from your hectic days to enjoy the new season! Whether you are busy rushing back and forth to work or chasing the little (and not so little) ones around to make sure they have all that they need, take time to watch the changes all around you.
The air will smell fresher, and all the buds will start to come out from the ground, on the trees and on the bushes. The birds will be twittering in the trees and the animals that have been hibernating will soon appear.
In the spring, I love to take leisurely hikes with my children at the Royal Botanical Gardens while taking pictures of all the wildlife and nature, or go to the park with a picnic lunch to feed the geese and ducks.
Think about some of the activities you would like to do this spring, and write your own list of things you would like to do this season. With all the beautiful nature Canada has, make sure to get outside and take advantage of the beauty that surrounds us. You do not even have to go far from home! Start planning, and then plant your own flower or vegetable garden. Feel the dirt beneath your fingers as you are digging, planting and weeding. After a few weeks you can sit back, relax and start to enjoy the fruits of your labor as your plants begin to sprout.
Now is the time to make your list and we are going to help you start:
#1. Make sure to get outside and soak up the vitamin D that your body has been missing from hibernating all winter!
The rest is up to you.
