Easter Egg Hunt Photos Spring had arrived, but on that day, overnight, Mother Nature took an opportunity to remind us that when it comes to winter's ultimate farewell, it's not exactly packing its bags. A glance out the window showed a pristine landscape that had once again been blanketed with a new cover of fluffy flakes. While it might have been a little disheartening, it was also unquestionably picturesque, a reality that's much easier to accept at the end of the season. There's so much to enjoy at this time of year. We look forward to snow showers turning to rain, which in turn will wash away the detritus left in Old Man Winter's wake. We know that soon, yes, the skies will be crying. But that goes hand in hand with sprouting flowers and trilling birds. The heaviest of our cold-weather duds will be packed away and lighter, breezier fashions will find their way back to the closet. The landscape will brighten, the grass will green and trees will bud.
