Spring Is Everywhere...Unless It's Summer Where You Live

By Scott McLean

Tomorrow is Arbor Day, yet another occasion to celebrate nature, with a focus of planting trees.

Spring is a wonderful time of year to be outside and go for nature walks or roll up one's sleeves and do some gardening.

Tomorrow and this weekend, I'll be working in the garden, providing the weather is decent. The fruit trees have blossomed, the daffodils and tulips are quite beautiful, as well.

I realize the four seasons are difficult to grasp if you live in a year-around hot climate, such as in Southeast Asia. But in the Pacific Northwest (US), many other parts of North America and the world, the spring is greeted with great enthusiasm.

After months of chilly winds, snow and rain, a little sunlight breaking through the clouds in March or April is powerful in restoring smiles to faces.
