Springtime in Staunton is always a burst of flowers and newness. The soft rounded greenness of the trees on the hills and mountains tell us that it is time to enjoy the outdoors.

Downtown there is renewed evidence of people even when they are not on the street. This little bits of life showing up outside bring a warmth beyond the sunshine. You feel more welcome.

Even inside the stores, there is a new perspective on on things. A fresh take.

The old seems new and the new has a timeless feeling. That is the essential element of any seasonal change: timelessness. These annual repetitions are built into the way we view the world and the the things we create. With a bit of patience, we can see springtime all around us even when we are not looking out the window.
