The older I get, the more I treasure the spring. In Denmark, we long for the sight of the fresh green beech leaves. My mother always said that the beech got its leaves on May 7. Last week we had some hot days, and today I found these leaves on my running exercise. The colour is unique and will only last a few days or weeks.
The spring gives me the hope that there are law and order in this world. At a specific temperature, the flowers and leaves arrive in perfect order. The birds find each other, and each sings their songs to attract the other bird of the same kind or to warn other birds of not entering this territory. Last year I wrote a blog post on birds in the spring.
