20 Things I Love About Spring

I thought that I would write down the 20 things I love
about spring.

1. Lots more daylight.
2. New leaves, and new flowers waking up.
3. New babies.
4. Strawberries.
5. Being outside early in the morning.

6. Being outside late in the evening.
7. The ground warming up and the wonderful smells.
8. The citrus trees will start blooming and I love the smell of orange and lemon
9. The big plummy night moths come out of the cases and I can
watch them at twilight and pretend they are fairy's.
10. I can say words like twilight and dusk and you know
how magic they are too.

11. We can sit outside in the evening and BBQ and the bugs
haven't arrived yet.
12. My seeds I have planted are coming up in the peat pots and
soon they will have a home.
13. I will be able to take my coffee out to the garden and watch
the shadows change and grow in the mornings.
14. Our Anniversary is in the spring.
15. In the spring, there is always hope.

16. I love Passover, I love the promises of the empty tomb.
17. I love spring because I know winter is over.
18. I love the rain, that bring May flowers.
19. I feel so alive in the spring.
20. What do you love about spring?

I hope you have a lovely Monday.

What a wonderful list!! It doesn't quite feel like spring yet in New England. We could have flurries tomorrow.

I love the new life things poking from the ground after a harsh winter and the promises of warmth and beauty , birds signing and building their nests and shedding my heavy footwear and winter cloths and hanging cloths on the line and watching kids play in the yard, more sunlight and flowers everywhere, flowering trees and too many things to name them all. Happy spring. JB

I just love all of the above! I also love that first picture of the baby sunflower with the flower petals on it. :-)

I love all the different colors and the many shades of green emerging. The warm sun on me and barbecues outside. And of course my favorite is putting the boots away and getting out all my shoes!

Well, I love the longer days, but here in the north-west corner of Scotland, there's not too much I can say about the weather! said...

What a great many of mine are the same. My husband and I talked about how much we love the windows open and waking in the morning to the spring breeze...such a nice part of the year...and Happy Anniversary this spring!

Yes Passover!

Oohhhh, I love this! I'm chompin' at the bit for spring to come. But I still see snow on the ground...hurry the heck up, spring!

Kim your spring list is so perfect, and I wish I lived near by, I would want to visit you and sit with a cup of coffee, compare notes and chat about so many things. Have I told you lately that I treasure you and your friendship? I often wonder when I am outside what you were doing.
