"What a wonderful time of year," could be said at the start of every season for the unique beauty they each bring. But truly, isn't spring one of the best? The early morning light and the warmth of the sun are a welcome relief after the long and dark winter. The first lavender crocuses, yellow daffodils, hint of green on the trees and the songs of birds remind us that the earth is awakening and there is new life again with much to be enjoyed in the coming months. It is probably no coincidence that the holiday of Easter coincides with this time of the year. The rebirth at spring, along with eggs, rabbits and other holiday symbols have historical roots that represent both religious and secular perspectives which have evolved through the ages with converging traditions.
