Spring is a new experience for me and my wife. We spent the last decade (or more) living in the middle of a desert where Spring has a very different meaning. In the desert there is no great surge of life springing forth from the formerly frozen landscape. There is no loss in winter, and so no gain when spring arrives.We spent today exploring spring with every one of our senses at the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. Our nation's capitol is beautiful and even more so in spring. I wish I were capable of saying something more than, "nature sure is pretty". But after a day of sensory overload, that's about all I can muster. Hopefully tomorrow I can come up with something semi-clever.
