Weather: Partly cloudy, but pretty sunny. A slightly chilly breeze
I'm not sure if the city waters this grass, or its just rained a lot, but right now it seems like theres plenty of water. The grass that was completely brown only a few weeks ago is now thriving; completely green. Patches of clover and weeds are springing up everywhere, adding to the green color. Every single tree has small green leaves growing from the ends of its branches, starting to take on their typical shapes. The lilac bush is now fully covered by green leaves, and is sprouting small purple buds. Across the street, a crabapple tree is already shedding its fragrant flowers. The sound of birds is constant, and I can see a few robins foraging for food. A bluejay darts into the hollow of a tree. I see insects buzzing around, in higher numbers than previous weeks. everywhere I look, I can observe how spring continues to grow and flourish.
