The sights delight and the smells are sweet, but the sounds of spring are an unparalleled symphony that is soul-soothing.  Birds are chirping, cawing, twilling, and cackling. Frogs are singing “background” in the creek.  Bees are busily buzzing around every blossom. Even the wind rustling leftovers from last fall adds to the concert.

While raking the leftovers and recent storm debris I heard a humming sound and thought it might be a distant vehicle or farm equipment.  Then I realized that the top of our 20′ tall Pussy Willow was buzzing with hundreds of bees.
