I read something in the Garden section of the paper today that describes exactly how I marvel at this Spring wake up:

"How do these hidden hibernators locked in a furnace-filtered house know it's spring ? Know to emerge from the dirt and reach for the light ? Know that the light will be there now to sustain them ? ... The mysteries make me want to take care of the living things in the wake of all the wonder they provide. With a little more care, surely many more miracles will abound." -Annie Calovich, Wichita Eagle, 3/21/09
