Beautiful Spring day

What does Spring mean to you?

I guess the normal answer is seeing daffodils come out or young lambs gallivanting about. Being a tree person though, for me Spring means 'bud swell'. Don't know what that means? It's actually quiet simple. In early Spring tree buds get bigger before they open up and unfurl their leaves. Find a tree branch in easy reach and you can see how buds 'fatten up' over a few days. Of course this is not so much in your face as the daffs or lambs, but great fun to see things grow.
