Our normally golden (ok, dried up) hills are very green, the oak trees are starting to leaf out and color is starting to appear in the garden. Spring is my favorite season – our temps have warmed up, the days are sunny and clear and the little rain we’ve had is enough to bring the daffodils up!
Although January is the beginning of the year, to me Spring is really when things begin again and it’s easy to be hopeful (optimistic?) about the future. Something about the crisp air and the return of the hummingbirds to the fountain makes my heart lighter. There’s a promise in the air … of change and renewal. I find myself smiling a lot lately. A lot.
