Imagine walking in the garden

The day is bright, and a new warmth settles on the backyard oasis.

Dew drops on leaves wake up the garden from its long winter nap and pollinators of all kind busily buzz around. The first flowers are always the winter weeds, but the bees are thankful for them. You can see them dancing in delight when they find those first dandelions.

That is the feeling of "apricity”, the warmth of the sun on a winter day.
