Sometimes you have to rely on your own opinions, trust your own taste and experiences without being influenced by what others say or write.

As I write these lines, the first violets are starting to appear and the fine-billed birds are getting restless as spring approaches. What more beautiful a sight to behold than nature waking up after its winter slumber? Strawberry, gingerbread, violet.
