Following a few dreary days of greys and uninspiring, overcast weather, I woke to a welcome scene of sunshine.
Now, whilst I can’t deny how much easier I find it to haul myself out of bed when waking to the sight of sunlight gleaming through my window, I’m definitely someone who has always been most keen on the autumnal months of the year. Summer and Winter tend to be too much of one thing for me; I prefer the flannel-wrapped crispness of an Autumn wind, and the vibrant yellows and deep reds and purples of the ever-changing backdrop that these months bring. However, I’m also smitten with the magic of British springtime; the cool breeze, warming temperatures and radiance of the brighter days.
Having woke to such a scene, coupled with the delivery of Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson – a Canadian poetic novel – I decided to create a playlist of all things ‘Spring’ to listen to as I glanced through my new arrival in the sunshine.
So, here’s the ‘Spring Days’ playlist to get you in the mood for the coming weeks:
