The first sign of spring is when a robin shows up in my backyard. The flowers are pushing their heads up through the ground, and the grass is turning green. There are the first buds turning green on the trees, and the early shrubs are starting to bloom. In some gardens the crocuses are blooming. When the weather is nice the people are cheerful and happy. The children play on the playground, running and laughing. The ducks in the park are happy because the ice has disappeared, and they can swim in the pond.
Springtime gives me a good feeling that I want to do a lot of things. It gives me plenty of energy to do the house work and the garden work. I get up early in the morning at about 5 or 6:00, and go for my enjoyable walks. The sun is coming up and it is quiet and peaceful. I listen to different sounds like the birds chirping away. It gives me a happy feeling as everything comes alive including me too.
Springtime gives me a new start in life. There is so much to be thankful for at this time. We can see the beauty of nature, we can hear the birds singing away and we can see early splendor. Make every moment here on earth count because we pass here only once.
