The calendar says spring has arrived! A new season with new expectations, at least regarding the weather. Instead of saying 'it's a warm winter day', now we'll say 'it's a cool spring day'. Spring means freshness, opening the windows, letting the crisp clean air flow through the rooms, pushing the stale winter air out. When I placed the mandarins and limes on the bright white cloth I immediately thought of how fresh it looked and how, for me, it looked like spring.
