Last night we put the clocks back in the UK to GMT. There is something nice about cosy evenings in during the winter but I always look forward to the clocks going forward again at the end of March, the promise of light evenings, spring birds and flowers.
It amazes me how short the winter usually is: we are only 7 weeks away from the shortest day and even by the end of January the evenings are starting to get lighter later. By mid-February there is usually more than a hint of a new spring in the air.
Luckily in the UK every season has something good to enjoy. I'd hate to live in a place where seasons and evening times barely change.
