The quotes below from various sources announce and broadcast “SPRING!”

The Song of Songs (2:11-13) proclaims the following:
See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me!
