Signs of life! - Spring 2014

Along the river, over the hills, in the ground, in the sky, spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm, new life, new beauty, unfolding, unrolling in glorious exuberant extravagance, — new birds in their nests, new winged creatures in the air, and new leaves, new flowers spreading, shining, rejoicing everywhere.
— John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra

It's really happening! Spring is here, and things are growing!
