first of the season

Spring-time inspiration hit this past weekend. Whatever it is that you love about the spring, this was the weekend to get started.

For me, it’s hiking. I love the anticipation and planning out the trail. We headed out first thing Sunday morning for about an 8 km loop on the Bruce Trail. We hit the jackpot with the first perfect day we’ve had this year for hiking. No bugs. Blue sky. Cool in the morning. Summertime warmth when we finished up.

I love watching the first plants pop through the forest floor. There were coltsfoot, hepatica and trout lilies just popping out. And I even found a few wild leeks, but they need a bit more time to grow before I harvest them for this.

There is something pretty perfect about getting back outside in the spring. What’s your first of the season favourite?
