Yesterday was the first really beautiful day we've had since our rash of late season snowfalls began. It's hard to believe that all along under that heavy layer of snow mother nature has been coaxing her brood out of its sleep only to have it emerge with an explosion of colour at the first touch of the warm sun's rays. The last traces of snow are gone. The windows are thrown open to welcome the fresh breeze, and the house is filled with the sweet sound of birdsong loudly announcing their return from their arduous journey. I enjoy the gentle sound of raindrops as yet another impromptu shower passes overhead before the sky clears again to a magnificent blue.
Oh how I love Spring.
