Our mother Earth rotates on her axis 365 times a year. Circling the Sun, her majestic beauty is seen in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Within this circle of life comes the changing of the seasons, two of which are spring and autumn. Signaling a new beginning, spring offers new hope and new life begins.
