As the daffodils start to appear and blossom tentatively creeps onto the trees here in my corner of the UK, I thought it was the perfect time for a soundtrack to welcome in the spring.
I love reflecting the mood of nature with the music I listen to, and spring is no exception. There are some beautiful songs around that celebrate the turning of the seasons, capturing the gentle tentative wakening of the world.
From Vivaldi to Simon & Garfunkel, listen to my Spotify playlist here – or preview it below – and join me in putting a soundtrack to spring! Track listings are given at the end for anyone who doesn’t use, or want to use Spotify (totally understandable).
