Springtime in the Northeast is when the earth begins to breathe again, the sun melts the remaining patches of snow, and a chorus of birdsong wakes you up a bit earlier each day. Spring is pure bliss with bright blue skies and sparkling clear days. When the rains fall, they are gentle and nourishing. Spring is one of my favourite seasons when fields are filled with daffodils and winter gear is no longer necessary. This year, I will experience two seasons of spring as our trip to South Africa is at the beginning of the South African spring season. On our last trip, the fields were blooming beautifully with wildflowers and even in the deep bush there were many small wildflowers hidden amongst the terrain.. Travel offers seasons of wonder 365 days a year. When to go is as important as where to go for capturing the beauty and essence of the region.
