"Now every field is clothed with grass, and every tree with leaves; now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year assumes its gay attire."  - Virgil

In just a matter of a few days, the natural world suddenly surged to the fullest richness of spring. From the budding leaves of trees came an explosion of vibrant yellow-green foliage that's quickly growing to the deeper color of maturity each day that passes. Now, nearly all the trees are fully loaded with leaves, and some are beginning to bloom as young flower buds are showing up.

Everyday I watch in disbelief how fast they are growing, sometimes afraid that they grow so fast that they would as soon wither and fade away. Then everything would be over in so short a time.

Anyway, that's how sweeping spring is, everything explodes in a moment. 

All the spring flowers are out to give a contrasting accent to the world of green. They're bursting out to a million cheerful little faces that smile at those who look at them with appreciation. Another explosion of vibrance in manifold colors.

Songs of birds also explode in the air to celebrate the warm and balmy presence of spring.

Even the sun explodes in its brightness and doesn't let the darkness take control of the night. Its radiance keep glowing all night long.

Yes, everything explodes unstoppably. Even the people gear up in a blast of outdoor activities.

My heart also explodes with joy as I look at the beauty all around me.

Life is indeed beautiful! Despite all the bleaknesses that we are experiencing, life is still a bliss if we look at it in the right perspective.
