stepping into spring

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
~D. Larson

Recently I bought a bunch of colorful tulips and what a delight it is to watch them gradually open up.  Spring makes me think of flowers, sunshine, rain, scarves, skirts, bare legs, knee highs, farmers' markets, planting, kite flying, salads, jumping in puddles, weekend excursions, reading, outside/inside, and more.  Simply put, plans made have an A, B, or C.  With this all-over-the-place kind of weather given, I find myself embracing the spontaniety that each day brings.  What do you love about Spring?

  2. Spring makes me think of gardening, dirt on my hands, watching how buds closed to the world need only one or two sunny days to make them burst open, the constant transition and changing of the world, how it slowly moves from dormant to vibrant and alive.

    I love spring. :)

  3. i like that quote. for me spring is about the light - there is a distinct difference - even when it's kind of grey there is a different feel to the light which makes one think of summery days ahead. have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I especially love on the spring, the birds come from the south and I will not awaken from the alarm clock in the morning but the chirping of birds. So beautiful.

    Have a nice and sunny weekend!:)

  6. I love the warmth of Spring and how it's such a contrast to the season just previous to it. We go from winter coats to light spring jackets and opening windows instead of them being frozen shut!

  7. Spring brings the smell of damp earth, squishiness of mud, buds and blossoms and the warmth of the sun.

  9. oh i love your list of things, most of all the spontaneity that each day promises. for us, spring is breezy with clear blue skies and very little rain, that will come as summer approaches. so we are making the most of lots of time outside :)

  10. Spontaneity is important here too. The weather has been shifting all day today. My favorite part of spring is watching all of the colorful blooms come to life.
