Write a paragraph in about eighty words on the changes that you see in nature when spring comes after winter.
The Changes Of Nature In Spring After Winter
Spring comes immediately after winter. Winter is followed by spring. Everything in nature appears to be dying during the winter. Winter’s chill has penetrated even the heart of the barren trees. Everything appears drab in the gentle sun. The trees, which lose all their leaves in the winter and become dead, now produce fresh, fragile leaves. Instead of the chilly north winds, a pleasant, moderate breeze flows. Both at night and in the morning, there is no fog. The cold wind causes the birds to stop singing. Yet when spring approaches, a vast array of flowers start to emerge. Bees buzz, butterflies flutter, and birds sing. During the day, the sky is clear and a deep blue colour, while at night, it is starry. Everything in nature appears to be vibrant and stunning. The natural world is vibrant at that time. The weather is delightful and lovely. Instead of the chilly north winds, a pleasant and moderate breeze blows.

March 11, 2023
A routine is performed as part of a regular procedure rather than a special reason. A routined life fixes our life on track. I also prefer a routined life, so I divided my day into good times according to work.
I wake up at 5.00 am. My day starts from going for a walk then I come back after 1 hour. I have breakfast around 8.00 am and then I get ready to go to school. I attend school from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. Then, I come back home around 5.30 pm. Then I have my cricket coaching classes to attend. After that, I return home around 7.15 pm. Then, I study for 2 hours and have dinner at 9.30 pm. I go to sleep at 10.00 pm.
I like the morning part of the day because In the evening time I get tired after my whole day’s routine whereas I feel energetic and fresh in the morning which encourages me for good study and a good start.
