Spring tides and bright blue skies

The most fabulous day today, a true celebration of the Spring Equinox for me. There are very high tides and it is sunny. What more could I want?
As you can see the bay was extremely busy this morning. Many watersports fans taking advantage of the high tide.
There is something about the spring and autumn tides that invigorates me. It gives me so much energy that I can feel quite giddy with it:)

A need to be out in the open air, soaking up the energies from wind and sun. Feeling the spray from the tide as it breaks over the rocks and covers the promenade.

A sign of warmer days, longer days as well now that the clocks have reverted to British Summer Time.
A time to plan, to set seeds and to watch them grow. Not just in the garden but within my life.

A bursting of energy, a need to be outdoors. To enjoy the spring in all its forms.

The snowdrops here have gone overnight. From seeing white clumps of flowers everywhere we now have yellow, golden yellow and all shades from palest primrose to deepest orange.
I love this turning point when all the spring bulbs burst into colour. Everywhere I look on our travels I see this beauty, this energy . It spirals around the flowers and the trees and on its way touches me also.
Spring, the harbinger of abundance in all its forms.

I have something to show you that reflects the colours now.

Another Alveare hat and some matching fingerless mittens.
Yarn is hand dyed chez Moggie. Such rich lush blues reflecting sky and sea.
Shades of golden daffodils and fresh new leaves.

I copied the pattern of the hat onto the mittens and I think they turned out rather well:)

I love Woolly Wormheads patterns, they are so easy to read and to follow. Just look at the back of the hat, hexagons to reflect the 5 elements of Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit.

A side view to show how it drapes.

Enjoy your day also.

I love seeing all the brave spirits out in the bay, windsufing and kite surfing. The hat looks fun to knit.
