Flowering trees foretell the arrival of Spring with their delicate pink and white crowns. Forsythia fronds wave in the breeze as if saying "hello -- we're back." Hardy pansies, having weathered Winter, revel in the warming trend. A whisper of a breeze cradles petals falling like pastel snow upon the newly verdant ground. Pale leaf buds on trees expand with every rain shower. The scent of Spring reveals fragrant soil warming and dormant growth coming back to life. The sun takes a new position and shimmer as it starts revving up for Summer. Won't be long before flowers attract bees and human noses. The promise of summer bounty and warmth thaws our chilled souls and entices us outdoors.
