The spring scent

The first green grass, first blooming snowdrops and that moment when you can physically smell the spring in the air.  And of course that first day when you throw your
winter boots into the wardrobe, wear shoes and walking is so light that it feels like you are really walkIMG_1754ing couple inches above the ground.

As here, in Latvia, we still have to wait for this moment a little bit, I’m trying to bring a little bit of green and colors in my home myself. Have you ever tried to make the buds open in your home? This is one of my spring traditions since childhood.

Usually I try it with branches of bird-cherry or birch. This year I’m trying it with lilac, apple-tree and brunches of a plant that I don’t even know the name of, but they are growing in my mothers garden and blooms with small pink flowers. Will see how it goes this spring.

Making buds to open and flowers to bloom is my way to bring the feeling of spring in home earlier. How do you do that? Please leave a comment.
