First signs of spring

Ah, this wonderful season of the year is here again… This year I celebrate it in a very special way. After almost a decade living in the subtropical/tropical zone of the United States I miss spring immensely. After all, this is the time of the year when I was born!

Not far from the place we live in Rotterdam there is a beautiful lake with a nice park around it. That is where I was hunting for the first signs of spring to bring them to you! They are almost invisible to an impatient eye. But if you look closely you will notice a breath of a new season coming next to a small rock hidden in the grass, or on the branch of still asleep tree. All of this is filled with the orchestra of golden sunny notes coming from above! Spring is coming and the whole world is rejoicing…
