Spring is the time of year when we most often pop open our peepers and pronounce

                                        “Oh, what a beautiful Morning!"


Mother Nature lends her props: a periwinkle sky & a light breeze. Crocus, forsythia, & daffodils unfurl with hints of what’s to come.

(Quick! Southern hemisphere readers, click here.)


The air's charged with possibility & renewal. Life feels promising, like a new beginning. Teeming with spirited activity, it's a time for changing up routine & taking chances.


Although winter steps aside for spring every year, somehow it’s still an enchanting surprise. The days get longer, our moods lighten & lighter fare begins to feel like a good idea.


Who doesn’t perk up when they see the first signs of life on the trees – the pop of green in early spring? There's nothing  quite like the chartreuse-green haze of budding trees after months of winter’s monochromatic landscape to induce spring fever.


Birds chirping.  The warm sun on our faces. Spring-time ingredients fill the marketplace: fragrant strawberries, pencil-thin asparagus, young peas, baby fava beans in the pods  (the crowning glory of spring veggies) & tangy, celery-like stalks of rhubarb.


It seems we humans are charmed by all things baby & never more so than in the spring.

For outdoor obsessives, 'tis the season to feel the crunch of pine needles under our hiking boots again.

It won't be long now until our first ladybug sighting.

And before we’re breathing in the unmistakable scent of a freshly-mown lawn & running barefoot through the grass.
