The days have been short and dreary, the nights cold and long. The rain and snow have been falling for so long that it seems endless. Sometimes you feel like you'll go mad if you have to spend one more day indoors looking out the window at such miserable sights. And then just as you think you can't bear it for one more day, a miraculous thing occurs. You see a small bud of green on a plant, or that first robin appears. Suddenly the tress are abloom in soft pink flowers all around and you know that finally... Spring has Sprung!
