What I like in spring

Spring is so amazing. All around us we see new growth bursting forth in the warm weather. Today I see the trees bursting forth with the new leaves. So small and fresh. The first colors of green so bright and full of hope. As I drive by I see trees in the distance have a green around them. No leaves yet to give it life. Just the early growth that makes them look as thou they are waking in the early days of spring.
The birds have returned. Robins are everywhere. Hunting in the fields and yards for nesting material for the new nests that will be their homes for the summer. They are wonderful at scavenging the ground. Nothing on the ground goes unnoticed. Ever leery of cats. The natural predator, ready to take to flight the first signs of danger. The safety of the trees are home and haven to the birds.
The grass is springing up early. So fresh and full of color. The new blanket of green is so inviting. The earth worms, for all one could say of them, are indeed the ones to get life flowing in the earth below. They burrow tunnels under the roots of trees and vegetation stirring up the soft earth to ready the soil to provide all that will sustain the life forms above.
So carefully was this world created. All things in they're place. All set to awaken on time to start the life cycle over again. Our world is so full of such wonders, such beauty. The life that fills this planet is such an amazing place to behold.
Life. So fragile and precious.
Spring. Life begins anew. Take time from your daily routine to see what is alive and all the beauty that is being born in the simplest things.
