Spring is here


The sounds of birds singing and the cheerful conversations of my neighbours out enjoying the sunshine heralded the passing of the long winter season.
Some, such as my six year old grandson,


will miss it for all the great winter sports such as hockey, skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and skating.
As for myself, this was my first winter spent without snow, and while I have to admit I miss the beauty of it on a crisp, sparkly day, I don’t miss the roads or the never-ending shoveling.

For me, maybe because it’s my birth month, spring is a time of renewal and promise. I love all the signs as the grass turns green, the plants burst into flower and babies are born all over the animal kingdom.


What about you? Is spring your favourite time of year?
