the best thing about spring is how things come back to life - the trees get green, people come out of hibernation, etc., etc.

Robyn said...

The thing I love most about spring is that after a winter of hibernation, I am able to spend my weekends in our greenhouse, prepping for the upcoming season. I LOVE planning my garden and sowing seeds... feeling nature in my hands on a daily basis is such a great feeling. :)

Oh, the flowers, flowers, flowers! Flowering trees, flowering tulips and daffodils, bushes of flowering lilacs and so much more.

Uno Kidney said...

Spring: how do I love thee? I love the smells of spring, the promise that it holds, and the uncertainty of the weather: cold one day, blistering the next, snowing the next (esp. in Idaho!)

I would la la love to give a necklace to my mom. I received a necklace for Christmas from my little guy with his name on it (with help from dad), but would love to share the wealth with my mother...

The warmth of the bright sun, and the act of digging out my flip-flops from their long months of hibernation!

Carla said...

I adore waking up every morning to trees that are blossoming. How I can go to bed and they're bare and the next morning there are little buds and out of nowhere the most perfect pink flowers. You blink and then there are leaves. Gotta love mother nature.

i love so many things about spring. it's like a reawakening for me. i think my favorite -- aside from the tulips -- are the birds singing in the morning. love those darn birds. the louder, the better.

Packing up all my dark clothes and wearing Spring-y things.

Spring is my favourite season. I love it when the evenings get longer and lighter, when you can switch to a spring jacket and put away the big coats and hats and scarves. I love freshly mown grass and the smell of the lilac trees blooming. Spring fills me with hope!
