Every year, when spring is coming I am so grateful! Although it happens every year, I experience every year once more how everything comes to life. And this is the most amazing thing that makes me feel like a little child who discovers the world! Every morning when outside the nature still can be covered by hoarfrost I am full of anticipation and joy to explore all that springs. Everything is fresh, the air, the green, the birds start singing and building their nests and everywhere it starts to be alive with insects. I love that the days get slowly longer, and it warms up slowly.There is no season in which as many trees and bushes bloom at the same time! Wherever you look you see colors and blooming. I reach the peak of the joifull delight when the lilac starts to bloom and his beguiling fragrance surrounds me. I would like to pause the time to keep it like this … and the only consolation that it will soon be over is that everything will be coming back next year!
