For those of you doing the Colbert eyebrow raise at me (you know the one), let me explain.
Springtime is usually associated with Wind (and the organ Liver, the colour Green, the element of Wood and the direction, East). It is a time of blossoming after a sleepy winter and the time when the woody stems of trees and plants start bursting forth with vigour and life as it is the start of a new year.
