Spring has returned to the Shire!

How are you celebrating this season?

In the spirit of Tolkien, we do suggest getting out to enjoy gardens and nature. Maybe have a little bit of an adventure.

If it's raining where you are (or you just feel like staying in), though, we've got some Tolkien-y things to explore from the comfort of your own home.
