A brief story about spring.
The first thing is the increase in warmth. The sun seems stronger, the light brighter and around you there appear the first of the spring blossoms.
You realise the season is changing as the days grow longer and the temperature such that you can discard warm clothes in the middle of the day.
I watched as a willy-wag tail flew about excitedly because he and his mate had nested on the clothesline next door. The sight of babies in the nest, feeding from their parent’s mouths has always reminded me of spring as a time of rebirth and renewal.
