I recently read on a German website how, with the increasing intensity of the light in spring, those “living close to nature” experience “a mild state of euphoria” and a feeling of well-being as a result of the extra shot of serotonin and dopamine the light produces.
What an understatement!
The photo above shows my spring corner under the Yew tree. First the snowdrops, then crocus, scillas, daffodils, corydalis, and still to come are the tulips and epimedium. It’s my favourite part of the garden in spring.
