Where does the water cycle start and end?

Water cycle as the name tells, is a continuous flow of water. It is a method inwhich our earth recycles the water thus maintaining the same amount of water now as the when earth was created. It does not have a beginning nor an end. However, when we explain the steps of the water cycle, also called as hydrologic cycle, we start with the water being evaporated from lakes, streams, dams, rivers, oceans etc or simply the process of evaporation from the surface water and ground water (the water from the ground). We end the one cycle with water being flowed back as surface and ground water. Eventually, the cycle again begins.
