Spring has arrived in the northern hemisphere! It's been a gradual, day-by-day dawning in reality, but it seems simply to have exploded after the sun and the rain. Everywhere I look green leaves are unfurling, blossom dances in the breeze, daffodils wave their cheery golden heads, and bees and butterflies say hello. On my daily walk I stop to lean on the fence and wonder at the tiny lambs bleating and gambolling in the field. The birds seem to be competing with each other as to who can sing the loudest. Clouds there may be, but I know that blue sky isn't far behind.
