As I sat by the weathered pine in my spot, I noticed the grass was a little greener, the birds a little more vocal, the trees filled with a little of their former Spring and Summer pride. Recently, it’s been feeling a little less like Winter and a little more like Spring. Lately, the birds have been singing their beautiful melodies more often. And most importantly, the buds of plants and flowers are very slowly changing as the frigid winter recedes. Although you cannot notice these subtle changes unless you observe closely, Winter is on the verge of giving way to Spring.
