Warm spring air is a beautiful thing! It gets us excited for good weather. Everywhere, flowers are beginning to grow and blossom. In fact, we often have fresh, new ideas blossoming in our minds during the spring, too. Read Andy’s quotation, and then tell us if you have any new ideas blossoming right now.

“Hey, everybody! Andy here. And it looks like, with spring, the flowers are finally starting to blossom. These little roses are looking pretty good. Now, here’s the thing with the word blossom: It’s something both flowers and, let’s say, ideas can do. For instance, you could have an idea blossom out of nowhere. When something blossoms, it means that it’s growing or that it’s coming into itself. Blossoming, a beautiful thing that happens in springtime.”
