A few of my favorite things about spring

Ahhh, welcome spring – my favorite time of year.
It is as if the earth comes back alive. Colors of nature transform before our very eyes from browns to vivid greens and yellows.
Bees suddenly appear buzzing throughout cherry blossoms. Bradford pear trees are striking with their seemingly snow-laden branches. And grass begins its ritual of upward mobility.
Children’s laughter fill playgrounds. Music blasts from open car windows. Flip flops replace boots. Shorts replace sweaters.
