A Nature Lover’s Paradise
With a yawn, I stretch my limbs on the threshold of our wide-open front door. A chorus of chirps, twitters, shrills and warbles washes over me in crystal-clear acoustic quality. The sonorous bombinating of a bumblebee reaches my ears from a nearby flower garden. Ah, spring. You can feel it down to your toes. You can taste it in the air you breathe. The whole world is waking and flourishing. Who wouldn’t wonder at the miracle of this incredible season? Dead come back to life; birds and bugs, nonexistent during the preceding four months, suddenly materialize and thrive. Wildflowers burst from fields of green, saturating the landscape with iridescent hues. A warmish breeze wafts up my nostrils and I’m exhilarated as I step out and begin my quest to get up close and personal with this exciting new world.
