Living with the Seasons

Last winter, in the abnormally cold conditions, I felt bad for the critters and plants outside who were enduring some very windy, cold nights.

Today, on a beautiful spring day, I envy the singing birds, playing animals, and blooming plants who get to be outside all day.

Those who live outside experience the risks and joys of freedom of the natural world.
