It's only the end of February and the nature is slowly waking up to life after the winter. Here are the pictures of first spring flowers I took earlier on today. I like spring as for many creatures and plants it's a time of growth and a beginning of a life cycle. The flowers start blooming, the first buds appear on the trees, animals become more active, some of them like bears for example wake up from their winter sleep. All of the sudden after a cold and dark winter the world becomes more colorful, brighter, lively and optimistic. And the weather is warmer so I feel more eager to go out for a walk or spend time outdoors. There is a canal nearby where I live and sometimes I walk along the canal and enjoy the nature. Soon there will be many fluffy adorable little ducklings swimming around the canal - that's the definite sign that spring is here. I like spring. Do you?
