I love this recording SO much!! It perfectly captures the atmosphere you describe. I like to play nature soundscapes while I study, but often they're either so monotonous I get sleepy or they have all kinds of sudden spikes in sound that startle me from thinking. This has all that cheerful wakefulness of Spring and makes me feel like I'm sitting there with you.
Wow, beautiful rain recording, very relaxing and restful, I love this. Continue your good work with rain, maybe in spring 2014, in april month or may! I would like a very long rain recording, without loops in the rain, it's better to relax.
