With spring around the corner and only a few weeks away, we begin to get excited for West Wales to blossom. Brighter days and the first real splash of colour after a grey winter are what we can not wait for! Let’s take you through some of our favourite things to do in Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire during Spring.
Spring welcomes longer days and shorter nights, which is always a treat after winter’s usual short supply of sunshine. Warmer weather and clearer skies are instant mood boosters, especially if you get to experience them on a beach or a scenic countryside walk! Daylight saving time starts on the 26th of March this year and we are counting down the days.
The beautiful woods, valleys and shores of West Wales are carpeted in Bluebells at this time of year, perfect for a walk. Bluebells usually blossom at the end of March to early May. Whilst they might not blossom for a few more weeks, we are definitely looking forward to it. The bright yellow daffodils are the biggest sign of spring, especially here in West Wales. Walk amongst the drifts of delicate flowers and enjoy the sweet scent of this beautiful national flower. During spring one of the best places to see these incredible flowers blossom is the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
Wildlife in Spring
Spring is a sign of new life. As lambs start to enter our world, the puffins will land on Skomer Island and we will see significantly more of our magical dolphin friends jumping around the coast. Puffins are delightful birds with brightly coloured bills. Each year around 6,000 of them return to spend the spring and summer on Skomer how incredible! So in Spring, the Pembrokeshire coast is definitely an extraordinary place to be.
