Happy First Day of Spring!
It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
Dot (AtticAndBarnTreasures.com) – Living in the south our Spring comes earlier than most. What is still a dream to some we have already experienced. BUT – the best part of that is we get to enjoy Spring many times over through the social media photos and tales from our friends as we watch their flowers and trees bloom and blossom and their little birds nest and hatch their young. It’s like having 3 months of Spring! I LOVE that!
JayDee (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – I love EVERYTHING about Spring! Spring is like a “do over” – the trees wake up with tiny buds and the anticipation of GREEN is on every branch. Johnny Jump Ups spring up from the woods everywhere you look with their purple and orange happy faces. Under the snow, the grass is just waiting to turn lush and green in anticipation of bare feet dancing on it’s carpet. Warmer temperatures mean Spring animals return, and oh! the deafening sound of thousands and thousands of FROGS! You just can’t help but smile in your heart when you hear all those frogs! Oh! And open water! There’s nothing quite like watching the last of the ice melt, leaving behind moving water. How I’ve missed watching the waves. There is just no other season as exciting as Spring!
Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) – I love early spring, when there air is warm and there are small areas of melting snow and the streams are full and the mud is squelchy. I love middle spring when everything is fresh and bright and full of promise for the summer to come. I love late spring, when I can finally declare my feet free from the tyranny of socks and let my piggies tiptoe through the tulips and any of the other spring flowers that the rabbits have decided not to gnaw down to nubs.
Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) – I love the promise of Spring….the anticipation of what Mother Nature has in store for us. Trees budding out, baby birds chirping, the desert colors beginning to emerge. Spring is a sign of what is to come which makes it my favorite season of the year.
Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) – I know Spring is fast approaching when the goldfinches at the bird feeder perk up to their brilliant yellow plumage. The smell of fresh cut grass and newly raked dirt promises a new season of growth and still makes he happy after all of these years. Best of all the first scent of Spring rain which will never be replicated by even the best perfumers.
Pam (VintageRenude.com) – Springtime is my favorite time of the year. The crisp cool mornings, bright blue skies, and new growth all signal a renewal of the circle of life. Every year I know Spring has arrived as I have a dove who makes her nest under my front awning and watches over her eggs and babies. The perfect new beginning.
Tina (GirlPickers.com) – Spring is like a rebirth of the earth every year. The trees burst into buds, plants sprout from the earth, and the birds start their migration back north. We watch for the first robin to appear and then we know it’s officially spring.
