I think that springtime can be beautiful and peaceful in different ways, depending on what part of the world you are visiting. This area is part of a wildlife sanctuary in Nebraska. Everything is becoming green (not quite as green as it is out west), but we could see the flowers and trees are starting to bloom and come to life. Not to be outdone, the sky is just as blue and serene as it is on the west coast.
And, of course, it would not be a wildlife sanctuary without the animals.
