Spring is in the air

By Susan Ksiezopolski

Here we are almost in spring, the season of rebirth, and fresh starts. Although this hasn’t been a harsh winter, we have seen more dark days than usual. This has been Ontario’s darkest winter in 80 years. Take heart, three groundhogs in Eastern Canada ( Ontario, Nova Scotia, and Quebec) all saw their shadows, indicating an early spring for us. That means, six more weeks of winter. By mid-March we will start to welcome spring and hopefully spring weather.

Signs that nature is waking up are all around us. Trees are getting ready to come back to life, the birds are busy chirping and celebrating, and days are getting longer. All reminders nudging us to revitalize, start something new, take on a new creative outlet perhaps. According to recent research, 35% of professionals in the spring month felt more motivated and productive, which makes spring the perfect time to try new things or rekindle old interests.

We can begin by spending more time outdoors, and keep an eye out for the buds first appearance on trees, and allow ourselves to be creatively inspired by the early sprouting crocus’, snowdrops, or daffodil. 

Come visit us at Joshua Creek and What better way to welcome spring, by spending some time at Joshua Creek and grant yourself a respite. Try something new and sign up for a workshop or book some time to walk our labyrinth.   When we get outdoors, and plug into the frequency of nature – it is healing and regenerating. By engaging with all our senses, we can hear, see, and feel the hidden messages mother nature has for us in the stillness.
