“Despite the forecast, live like it's spring.”
There are numerous reasons why one would be ecstatic about spring, but my personal favorites are the beautiful trilliums that pop their delicate flowers out in April and May. I usually spot them alongside the mountain biking and hiking trails. Their sight brings me instant joy and puts a smile on my face. A few times I became so excited to see them while riding my mountain bike, that I lost my concentration and as a result, was about to get too close and personal by nearly face-planting in the dirt next to them.
