The spring rains have watered the land, the heat from the sun has warmed the ground and all through the meadows of the forest wildflowers spring joyfully from the ground. A rainbow of colors dancing in the cool spring breezes. If you hold just still enough you can hear the gentle buzzing of the honey bees as they journey from blossom to blossom in search of sweet nectar.
