Watching the world wake up

It's a pretty spectacular thing going through an honest to goodness spring season after 13 years. California is sort of a perpetual spring, with many lovely plants in bloom year round...but there is something extra special and invigorated about watching the daily progression of life bursting forth after a long winter in the east. It brings me such joy to notice each new centimeter of green pushing through the barren branches while the colorful cardinals and blue jays partake in the feeders Ryan has hung for my bird watching entertainment. And it is entertainment -- with all the bobbing and swooping and hoping and posturing -- and the Robins constantly chasing each other, on foot, no less, across the new grass. The laughing daffodils are also a true delight. What a blessing it is to watch the whole world wake up.
