WILLMAR LAKES AREA — Spring is truly in the air.

Winter has come and gone, and warm weather is here to stay for the next several months.

The grass is bright green and the tulips are blooming brilliant colors of reds, oranges, yellows and pinks.

Before the busyness of summer, take a moment to enjoy the beauty of spring. Whether it's a walk down the street, a bike ride on the Glacial Ridge Trail, or enjoying the sunset while fishing on one of the many lakes in the area.

Spring is a time of transition and change. Its quietness offers joy and contemplation, both on sunny and rainy days.

So, before it's too late, enjoy every moment.
