The best part this morning was the birdsong. The woodpeckers tapping tree trunks, looking for breakfast. The gold finches chittered and sang to each other. A bright red cardinal paid close attention to his mate. Gobbling from the wild turkeys living at the bottom of my cul-de-sac floated magically on the air.
Layering on top of all this sights and sounds was the rich floral aroma from the blossoms waiting to burst into life on my flowering crab tree. Plump, pink buds peeked out from the new, green leaves. I love spring and find nature inspirational in my writing. I could have sat on the front steps for an hour or more, just crafting sentences for my work in progress, dreaming up scenes that I could set on a lovely, soft morning like this one.
Each season has hallmarks that make it special for me. In Autumn it's the colors, Winter means fuzzy blankets and crackling fires. Summer brings barbecues, beaches and sunshine. But for me, Spring is about love, life, rebirth and romance. I fell in love with my husband during the spring months. I married him one summer 30 years ago. Both of my children were born in the spring, which makes the season even more special for me.
