Spring saw.

Tree trimming finally brought on Spring in this area. Singing birds have been disrupting the early morning calm for a while. Despite that, the temperatures steadily remained in the coat wearing range. When I was a kid, men in trees would signal Spring's arrival with the whiny mating call of their chainsaws.

There would also be a change in the Sun's appearance. The cold, gloomy Sun, which looked down on the frozen land during Winter, would be replaced by a warm, happy Sun which smiled on countless coatless hoards and various greenery returning to life.
