Ah, Spring! New life! New love! New possibilities! So many songs and poems and stories and paintings have been created based on the promise of renewal that spring brings. And rightly so! The snow and ice (though beautiful in their own right) are melting away to make room for buds and shoots and sprouts and all things green and growing. We get to plant gardens and watch them grow, to have a plumbing company come fix all the new spring leaks, to watch flowers open their petals, tentatively, for the first time, and maybe, if we’re very lucky, we’ll have a little family of birds or rabbits in our yard, who will allow us to watch them grow up.
