Signs of spring, 2012

It’s been a while since I pointed you, my dear reader, to the Big Picture blog.  I had to catch up with it myself.  While browsing through the horrible pictures of refugees and natural disasters, all of which are very sad and pessimistic, I came across a beautiful collection of images that capture the signs of this year’s spring coming.  It is these images – peaceful, beautiful, breathtaking – that I want to share with you.
