Ringing in Spring has never looked better. The flowers are in blossom and the warmer weather makes it prime time for some leaf-peeping. But for us night owls, enjoying the outdoors isn’t a walk in the park, but rather a walk in the dark. Yes, we prefer our dates with Mother Nature in the wee hours of the night. Because with the solitude of a moonlit stroll is the dark serenity that comes with taking in a midnight bloom.
