The unfolding time of spring brings new hope and courage to mankind. Nature gradually assumes her garb of warmth, tenderness, and freshness. The sunshine searches out the hidden places of earth, and repeats her miracle of making the world a smiling flower garden.

Spring comes softly and gently to smooth away the rough lines of winter, filling the air with perfume and melody, and awakening things to life. It is the promise of golden days and lingering lights. It is the time of graceful transformation, when the secrets of nature are slowly revealed to the wondering senses.

Birds and blossoms, leaves and flowers, trees and mountains, give ever-increasing delight, and all nature seems to join as in one choral song of praise and gratitude.
