Spring Forth: Le Quattro Stagioni

Spring has sprung: my neighborhood is expressing rebirth, renewal, change and growth. The cherry blossoms are blooming and so is my outlook on life...everyone's annual rite of passage, I suppose. 

It’s warmer and that certain something in the air – besides pollen – infuses my lungs with an energy that just hasn’t been present so far this year. There are some changes in the offing for the Rising Family, but I thought that I would dedicate this post to the simple pleasure of viewing the four seasons and what variety they bring to the tiny enclave near our apartment building.
