Sophie loves running and running on the beach…..

and Oh look, it is springtime once again!
Flowers are blooming and sprouts are sprouting!

The air smells sweet and the birds seem to know that we need to hear their melodic twitters.

But wait! What is this??
Is it snow? Or hail? No, it can’t be……

Sophie investigates further, looking up…she sees that it’s…
Cherry tree blossoms!! WOW!! So beautiful and lining almost every street!
Don’t you just love spring??

(Sorry to all my friends and relatives in the snowy prairies….I couldn’t resist! If it’s any consolation, I wish you could be here to enjoy the flowers with us.)
