It's Spring!

(Picture from here)

Hurrah! The first day of spring is TODAY. And our high is supposed to be 60 degrees. I'll take it!
I can't wait to see the bursts of green on lawns, trees, and flowers. Already I'm enjoying the sounds of the birds singing and the noticeable lack of chill in the air. My mood has lifted and I can't wait to go hang out at the duck pond or take a long walk in the warm breezes.

And...spring also means I can take my laptop out onto my deck and write. Bliss!

What is your favorite thing about spring?

  7. Snow melt!! It used to be bulbs popping up on my mom's birthday--the first day of spring--but now I'm just happy to see the ice slowly melting :)

    Glad you are feeling a bit better.

  8. Let the barefootin' begin! I especially love that it's not "sauna season" here yet but everything's all nice and green, and the mosquitos haven't arrived. Bliss!

  9. I love spring! Once I recover from the onset of Daylight Savings Time, the silent killer, I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation. I shed my winter coat (got my hair cut yesterday), and I'm perky and fun. That should last until at least 10:00 a.m next Tuesday.

  11. Hands down, it's gotta be the flowers. Portland has long, cool springs and the flowers seem to last forever. Going for a walk and savoring everyone's beautiful gardens (and my own!) is my absolute favorite!
