I love spring! Don’t you! I love to watch the early spring flowers pop out of the ground and see the flowering trees burst forth with their blooms. I’m in awe of the great variety of colors and flowers we see. After staring at the dark clouds and snow of winter, I usually feel they are long overdue.
