Spring Glorious Spring !!

Given the infidelity of the weather in Hongkong (it could be sunny in the morning and we could have a typhoon in the evening) and given the fact that the weather, over the past couple of months, has been downright gloomy and cloudy - it was a welcome forecast from the HK Observatory which said "bright and sunny" for a couple of days during the Easter break.

The kids' favourite haunt - Kowloon Park - was in full bloom and as an added bonus - Appu and Abhay's winged friends were back at the aviary too.

And when they are at the Rose garden, I've always noticed, the children seem to spring to life. It is almost as if those flowers in full bloom with the honeybees flying and winging their way in and out of the flowers and all those migratory birds chirping and cheeping - all that magic that is woven into the single word "Spring" - enthuses them to bubble over.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said "Earth laughs in flowers"

"The beautiful Spring came ; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also"
