Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lao Tzu
I am discovering that, due to the erratic weather recently, spring seems a bit more timid this year. There are no grandiose displays of blooming trees and bushes, and the trees are taking their time leafing out. Overall, spring has a much more subtle presence than usual. But if I look closely, I can find proof that the seasons really are changing. The grass is greener, the air is warmer, and the tiniest flowers are blooming in a most unassuming way. Nature is taking her time, but slowly the earth is awakening.
