(Day 97) All is calm, but ...

The calmness of this scene belies all the activity that isn't quite apparent. Beneath the serenity, life is stirring. Plants are awakening, trees are budding, birds are choosing mates and nesting sites. The gradual warming, and April showers, are nurturing all living things and before long, colour will be restored to the world. It's magical to watch.

@Katherine - the changing of the seasons, especially from the dead of winter, is a wonder to behold.
