I'm always amazed when everything starts growing in the spring. A world that was grey suddenly starts turning green and everything seems to grow. The Annapolis Valley is a fertile land filled with apple orchards and farms. At the end of May is the Apple Blossom Festival when the apple blossoms appear on the trees. The back yard explodes with growth and the grass shoots up from the ground and the leaves on the trees emerge overnight and form lovely green walls. Spring is also when the school year comes to an end with the summer and the possibilities of travel and lighter clothes and warmth. The days are longer and the sunlight is always so wonderful as it wakes you up in the morning and lingers into the early evening. Spring is the time of renewal, of change and of growth. It's beautiful.
