Everyone has a comfortable place to escape to for relaxation. They go there when they need to be alone, away from people’s disturbane.

I really enjoy the charming beauty of nature in this beautiful season.

One of the sounds I tune to first is that of the birds singing and chirping away as if they are creating a song. After sitting for a few minutes, I can hear the light breeze coming down through the trees, rustling their leaves. Besides those two things I hear, it is a peaceful quietness that you can’t get in a city or town. That is why I love nature, especially in the spring.

When I look around me, in the spring time when I am outside somewhere, I see beautiful bright clear things. For example, the tall green grass and the leaves on the trees sway breeeze. Then I see bright or pastel flowers around me. Swarms of bees rush at them to take their essence to make honey of it. I also see butterflies of various colours fly here and there about the flowers. Most days are bright and sunny. The sky is a beautiful landscape, blue with little clouds, if any in it. If I am in the forest, I see big tall trees all aound me.

The feeling of spring all around me is friendly to me. The weather is so fine, neither too cold nor too hot, and the fresh breeze blows gently against my face and makes me relaxed and happy. Then, when I am sitting in the grass, I almost of the time feel its moistness against my body. In fact, nature appears in its best form. It provides us with all kinds of pleasure.

Other things that I also love about spring are those smells that are widespread in nature. The air is fresh and full of pleasant aromas of different flowers.
