Spring Is Once More in the Air.
The air is decidedly warmer in spring and the softer winds carry pollen everywhere it reaches. Flowers have begun to bloom, peeking out from their winter hiding places to welcome the new season. Butterflies will soon be flittering from petal to stamen while avoiding the bees that will be busy collecting for their hives. The sky sports a new suit of radiant blue with white trim while the sun glows brighter than ever. Spring has a joy all its own. Ever stop to see the tiny leaves of flowers poking through the snow, eager to enjoy the warming sun? It is a wonderful thing.
Spring Brings Many Things
I know that many feel the summer is the best because we can go swimming and hiking. We can tan in the bright summer sunbeams. But spring has its own beautiful moments, just like fall and winter.
- The grass, brown and withered from the cold of winter, will push the brown suit out of the way to bring out its green suit for spring.
- The trees, baron and gray during their winter sleep, now sport new growth over the rough bark of their branches.
- Children beg to venture once more to the parks for the excitement of the slide and the swings.
- Lovers’ eyes are filled with romance and daydreams.
- Animals usually have cute little babies.
- Animals also begin their yearly shedding, scratching, and chafing as their coat thins for the warmer weather.
- And yes, the pests are out once more, seeking their prey who will be showing more skin for their biting.
Be sure to protect your skin from the biting bugs of spring including mosquitoes that use standing water to lay their eggs.
Spring Slips Away All Too Soon
Spring brings a much-needed break from winter's cold harsh environment. People swarm outside after being cooped up all winter with the same people, every day. The animals love spring too. Ducks will gather on the ponds and lakes to raise their young in the warmer weather. Birds will seek supplies for the nests they are building for the rearing of their young. And the other animals will begin their families once more. Humans will get busy planting their gardens and will open their homes to the freshness of the air. Animals will once more run free in the fields and pastures, while the flies buzz freely through the dung they leave behind. We enjoy spring that warms the ice and snow away, but, all too soon the hot summer sun will blaze overhead and the grass and buds will brown once more from the intense heat. Enjoy the newly found warmth and beauty of spring while it lasts.
Everything Begins Again
It is as if life has begun once more, having been asleep for thousands of years waiting for the kiss of spring to renew it. Life glows from trees, grass, flower beds, children, adults, animals, and insects alike. Life is once more bright and warm. Life blossoms when spring arrives. Spring keeps the world renewing itself. The summer comes all too soon and ends just as fast. So when the cool breezes of the fall season or the freezing temperatures of winter come, you can smile because soon there will be beautiful leaves of orange and red. There will be snow for building and throwing, and spring will soon be here.
The rain can't stop the butterflies that are so colorful in the spring. Or the birds that return to the warmer weather. Spring causes the snow to fall as rain during the spring and summer seasons. Then the rain becomes snow for the winter which will be cold and slippery, yet fun. All of the seasons are beautiful, especially if you are lucky enough to live in states that have full-season fanfare. But they never last very long, which makes each one special in its own way. Take a moment to enjoy the spring because it will soon melt into the summer where beaches and picnicking seem to be the norm. Then, just as quickly as the spring, summer will melt into the glorious colors of fall; that will soon become the sleep of winter winds and snow. Each season is different and beautiful in its own way. I hope you see more of them.
