Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 106: Springtime at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor loves springtime on earth.

The Doctor loves to be on earth in the springtime, especially in Britain. It’s all so damp and green, with everything growing, and trees bursting into blossom, pink and white clusters of flowers, like bits of candyfloss have been scattered among their branches.

It’s not just the plants either; the whole little island always appears to be bursting at the seams with new life in spring. Everywhere you look there are nests crammed with baby birds, lambs and bunnies frolicking in the fields, calves and piglets and baby goats, long-legged foals…

Watching them makes his old heart feel young again.
