The other morning I came across a really wonderful entry in — a collection of excerpts from “A Mystic Garden.”  In them the author, Gunilla Norris, makes a number of observations and descriptions of some of the things she loves most about spring, and then uses these to create analogies to life — to point out ways in which we can change and grow.  Spring is a time for rebirth in many ways!

Here is the link, if you would like to read what she has to say:

By the way, if you like spring you might want to visit the National Arboretum on New York Avenue in Washington, D.C.  To say that it is incredibly beautiful is a great understatement!  The Arboretum has an amazing collection of trees, from Japanese maples to cherries to dogwoods, to oaks, to conifers.  It is especially beautiful in April.
