Summary

Nature’s year begins.  Temperatures slowly rise.  Green gradually becomes the dominant colour of the landscape.  Rain from drenching showers to windy squalls help nourish the land.  Nature has embarked on her epic symphony of the year.   
 
Each year, each season, each day is a little different from her previous work.  Days lengthen as her canvas and palette grows more confident. Colour emerges from the shades of monochrome.  She is at work on tasks everywhere. 
 
Naturally our classic poets rise to the challenge knowing that they will only be able to detail fragments or broad brush stroke the whole.  They ponder, they write, they wonder.
