“Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.” ~Geoffrey B. CharlesworthAh springtime. The season of new beginnings. Suddenly you can feel the pulse of life returning. The mornings are brighter, the skies seem bluer, and the air just seems...fresher. It’s as if the earth is coming alive after taking a long winters nap. The grass is getting greener and the trees are getting fuller. There is a feeling of rejuvenation in the air that is not present in any other season. Nature is rejoicing and it’s impossible not to rejoice with it!
With spring drawing near, I feel it’s only appropriate to muse on the myriad of reasons that I love this time of year.
The warm sun on your skin is such a great feeling. On warm spring days Mother Nature is literally inviting you into her house by drawing you out of yours :)
The colors are everywhere. From yellow daffodils, to red tulips, to purple hyacinths, to white lilies…the colors are endless and amazing.
There’s nothing quite as soothing as the sound and sight of a warm spring rain as it nourishes the earth.
It’s nice to finally break out the shorts for the first time in months!
Is there anything more romantic than a spring-time picnic?
The days become longer and longer…allowing us to revel more and more in the amazing sunlight.
As spring enlivens the earth, it also enlivens us.

There are few things I love more than to fall asleep to the sounds of mother nature.
Smell of freshly cut lawns
I love Saturday afternoons with the sounds of lawnmowers in the distance and the smell of freshly cut grass in the air.
Isn’t there just something optimistic about spring? It’s as if there is an extra “pep in our step”, an extra dose of enthusiasm!
There are few sounds on earth as wonderful as the melodic sounds of all the different springtime birds singing in unison…makes for an unbelievable start to the day.
Green here, green there, green green everywhere!
I love seeing the grass and the trees brought to life by endless spring rains resulting in a beautiful hue of rich green.
I know we usually associate the Holidays with late autumn and winter, but springtime has quite an impressive list of holidays itself! St. Patrick’s Day , Good Friday, Easter, Earth Day (great cause), and Mother's Day.
Springtime is great for de-cluttering! I love spending a random spring weekend airing out the house and cleaning it from top to bottom. Great way to start the spring!
These are but a few of the many reasons that I love springtime. What's your favorite thing about spring?
