"Why does this make me happy?"

A friend emailed today to recount her four straight days of garden work.
She finally sat down this afternoon and saw the first Ruby-throated Hummingbird of the season.
"Why does this make me happy?" she asked.

I don't know.

Nor do I know why the Bluets,

Six Pointed Fishing Spider,

mating Red-spotted Newts,

or season's first emergent dragonfly, the Springtime Darner,

make me happy.

But they do. 

Ain't spring grand?
