Five things we love about Easter


We love this time of year, and as we start our two week school holiday we would love to share with you five things we love about Easter….

five things we love about easter

  1. MeeMee is home :) If you are regular readers you will know that MeeMee is my biggest sister, she is 19 and in Uni in Bristol. We miss her SO much and love it when she is home for the holidays. I haven’t seen her for weeks.
  2. Spring starts to appear. Which this time of year usually means better weather. Yesterday and the last week or so have been glorious bright sunshine, saying that the forecast for the rest of the weekend is rain but it might miss us! Living in Pembrokeshire means we do have our own micro climate and Easter can be quite a warm time for us.
  3. Daffodils everywhere! And this year there are more than ever. We love this cheery, sunny little flower and in Wales, especially where we are, there are hundreds along the roadside, in parks, in our villages, everywhere!
  4. Lambs. Tiny, new, gorgeous lambs. We pass fields and fields of them every day at this time of year. Every year Mummy threatens to ‘borrow’ one. To keep as a pet of course :)
  5. Our sleepy little county starts to come alive as the first proper wave of tourists come to visit us. Shops and attractions re-open, the villages, towns and beaches start to buzz with life. Of course that means the car parks are full, the cafes are full and the council decide to dig up every road in the area – adding dodgy traffic lights too!

The photo above was taken yesterday, Good Friday, in Colby Woodlands, Amroth. It was a warm, bright sunny day and we had a great time all together. We went out for brunch in Saundersfoot then on one of our favourite walks:

  25. Hope you had a great Easter, our weather hasn’t been great although we did manage to get out and see the daffodils on Good Friday, I try and keep some in the house at this time of year :). Have fun with the lambs, we will be giving it a miss due to my pregnancy but I am sure you will enjoy it.

  28. Your family pic is lovely, x This is such a nice time of year, we are seeing so many daffodils here too, swathes of them all around the countryside, it’s really beautiful. Family days are really the best! They seem to be fewer and fewer now that the kids are older but I appreciate them all the more :)

  29. These are truly great things about Easter and spring in general. I hope the entire family had a great Easter yesterday.

  30. Aww, I love how excited he seems to have his big sister home. That’s a gorgeous photo with the four of them.

    I like seeing the daffodils out too. They are such cheerful flowers.
