Spring spring sprung ...

Spring has arrived. People are poking their heads out of their shells. Cautiously. Like Hermit crabs. Stepping gingerly outside, a little hesitant. It has been a long winter and we don't quite trust the weather. The mornings are still cold but later on we sit outside drinking coffee and warming our toes. The landscape has erupted into life. Trees are unfurling and uncurling green. New shoots make them seem fluffy in the distance, like rabbit-tails. The hills are ablaze with yellow. The daffodils are beautiful and the deer do not eat them. We walk at the beach and fly kites on a breezy afternoon. We plan vegetable gardens and watch Nature waking. A new season has begun.
