Spring-series V.

„Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.”                                                                           Maria Rilke

Spring is green, tender, and alive. It’s the childhood stage of the seasons of transitions where innocence and purity permeate the atmosphere.

Spring seems to bring a rebirth to all of nature.  The blossoms arrive, the yellow daffodils and tulips show their colors, and the trees begin to display the light green shades of new leaves.  Our gardens begin to show signs of new life as the vegetables rise from the soil.  Spring means rebirth.

For animals, this season is a time of emergence and migration. Insects and hibernators emerge from their winter sleeping places.
Birds stake out their breeding, nesting and feeding territories so they may raise their young. The air is filled with birdsong.

Bees and bee mimics fly through the air to pollinate trees, shrubs and native flowers. Butterflies emerge after overwintering in tree crevices, as adults. Salamanders, toads and frogs emerge from hibernation. Frogs sing their mating songs.

„The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.”                                                    Bern Williams
