Spring is here and it is beautiful. Trees, shrubs and flowers are blooming. And it snowed! Yes, it snowed once last week covering all of my daffodils and hyacinths in bloom and it snowed once more this week as well!
But Spring snows do not last and before long the sun was bright and warm and a nice walk along the Charles River in Boston was just what the doctor ordered. The flowering trees are gorgeous, clusters of daffodils line the river edge, the ducks are mating, Canada geese are all over the park and even a pair of swans are swimming on the river. The crews are back rowing and even a few kayaks are in the water. Spring, it is a true feeling of renewal and a fresh start at life. I have often thought the new year should begin in Spring and not the dead of winter - but no one asked me!
