The colors of spring are a most welcome sight after a long winter.
And this year was no exception.
The river was running a little high.
The trees were starting to bud.
The warm day had a slight breeze that kept the annoying black flies away.
It was such a treat to take a stroll through the field that led to the river.
The bees were happily buzzing from one dandelion to the next - the first food flower of the season for them.
Little May flowers and sweet violets grew in patches in the shorter grasses.
The maples were sending out their seeds as the birds called their spring songs from up in the branches.
Mother Nature sure knows how to bring joy to the soul.
Each season has its own special gifts, and this day was one of Spring's finest.
