As each season arrives I think to myself 'this is my favorite time of the year'. Then as the season goes on I get tired of the snow or the heat or the whatever... I guess I just love the changes of the seasons. Here I am on a spring morning. The picture above was taken from my kitchen window - looking out at the tops of the trees in their vivid bright green foliage.
Starting out on my walk - I stop at the end of our driveway to savor the irises and flame azaleas all in full bloom.
As I walk up the hill I surprise both a squirrel and a rabbit. Usually they dash off as soon as they sense I am near, but these must have know that I had no ill intentions and they sat pretty still.
Looking up into the sky I stood still looking at the burgeoning clouds, which threaten a sprinkle or two and the blue sky behind the clouds.
This is the time in the forest where I can actually see something through the trees as they haven't all leafed out. Its the best time ever with new leaves, new flowers and young animals savoring this spring morning.
