Rural Spring Signs Mini Journal

We're looking forward to the signs of spring, some subtle like the bulging of buds on bare branches that will burst into gorgeous fresh leaves one day soon, and the green spears of spring bulbs pushing the dark earth aside as they clamber to the light.





Here in the Okanagan, BC we're still waiting for signs, the temperatures are supposed to rise, the snow's supposed to melt, but it's oh so hard to wait.

If you find yourself comparing a new Spring's arrival to the previous one wouldn't it be great to have an easy way to record them?

I've created the Rural Spring Signs Mini Journal just for you, to help record those first delicate signs of spring, something small that can be tucked away afterwards, pulled out for reference next year.

So, how do you get yours?





It's easy, sign up for Rural's seasonal email newsletter, sent out approximately four times a year and you'll not only be joining our amazing community of women who love nature and outdoors bu…

Wintery words that will warm you up for spring

Winter, the very sound of it is like frigid air blowing across a frozen lake.

It's such a beautiful season, but so intense.
And sometimes it feels as if it will last forever...we know it won't though...


Here are a few more wintery words to warm us up to the thought of spring, and to keep us believing that Winter is nearly over.

SHURL when all the snow slides off a roof after it begins to thaw, that’s a shurl.
Even the sound of it rushing off of your tongue sounds like the snow falling off of the roof.





Brumous:  those grey skies and winter days filled with heavy clouds are brumous.

Niveous resembling snow

MOBLE    When you moble you're wrapping up your head with a hood, think layering up to keep warm.





And a word that will fill those of us with snowbound hearts with joy...

Sareureuk a Korean word that describes the sound of snowflakes slowly melting in the warmer days or the sunshine.

Looking forward to Spring...
