What does Spring mean to you?


Source: Chris Hockelmann via Pinterest

Spring is my favorite season of all.

It excites my senses and ignites my creativity.

It allows me the fresh start I desperately need after the cold, long and lifeless Winter.

Spring means flowers blooming, bees buzzing, rain falling, thunder rumbling, lightning flashing, cool wind breezing, horse back riding, morning jogging, playground swinging, barbecuing, family gathering, wedding planning, late sunsetting, park picnicking, lemonade making, and children laughing– the simple things I relish.

Spring means clean linens, cherry blossoms, freshly cut grass, late nights and good company.

Spring means starting over, starting fresh, and starting new.

Spring means me.

Spring means you.

    For me spring means a lot of what you have said. But also I add to it growth. It seems to be the time of year you always try something new.

      Growth is definitely a huge part of Spring. What will you be trying this season? (:

    I always think of renewal when I think of spring and feeling the warmer breezes are always a welcome change.

      Definitely. It’s a breath of fresh air!

    Spring, spring such a wonderful thing,
    flowers bloom as it rains in May
    Cold begone, warm sunshine has come
    chasing the winter away.

    Something like that. I am so thankful that Spring is here, I can’t wait to get outside and start walking everywhere again, running, going to the zoo, the parks, Greenfield Village, Spring is Happiness!!!

      What a beautiful poem! I can’t wait to go to Greenfield Village and the zoo and just get outside more! I know my son’s anxious for all the outdoor activities again, too.

    Well, it’s snowing here in Massachusetts today, so I think we still have a while to go before spring hits us, but I am looking forward to it for sure.

      I heard it’s still snowing in that region, I feel for you! I will be crossing my fingers for Spring to come your way soon.

    I love spring – it signifies rebirth and a chance to clean out the house and really get things going. Our winters in New England are long, cold, and dark – I’m eager for a warm up and sunny days!

      Winter was just way too long this year. I’m hoping Spring makes it way to the NE states soon!

    I’ve always wanted to love spring, but it’s hard! Living in northern New England, spring is an elusive season at best. I always hope for the warm breezes, sunny days to open windows and work in the yard…truth is, it’s always frigid and wet and muddy. :P I’m really ready to skip right to the end of June! lol

    • Aly replied: — March 31st, 2014 @ 12:04 pm

      Aw! Haha I had no idea. We have our muddy/rainny days here but for the most part they are warm and sunny. We fry here in summer it gets way too hot and humid to function during June-August. Not looking forward to that part!

    Spring to mean does not mean snow and we had snow Saturday. LOL! Spring makes me want to clean, start our garden and get OUTSIDE!

    • Aly replied: — March 31st, 2014 @ 12:05 pm

      I don’t think mother nature is getting the hint lol. I’d love to start a garden! Will you be updating about it on your blog? I’d love to read more about it!

    I think, to me, Spring means a fresh start. After being cooped up in the house with snow and bad weather, all the sun and fresh growth outside really motivates me to get up and get going. I know why they call it spring cleaning – you get the urge to make everything in your home as pretty as it is outside of your home :)

    • Aly replied: — March 31st, 2014 @ 12:09 pm

      That is so true. I love spring cleaning and getting outside more and just feeling alive.

    I am so excited for Spring! It means open windows, the end of the school semester at the college I work for and barbecue.

    • Aly replied: — March 31st, 2014 @ 2:40 pm

      Yes! Open windows :D I finish my classes this semester in just one month and it’s perfect timing for Spring.

    Spring means warm sunny days and getting outside more! Also summer is right around the corner!

    • Aly replied: — March 31st, 2014 @ 2:41 pm

      I can’t wait to get outside more this season. Summer is too humid and sticky and hot here, but Spring weather is just perfect.

    Spring is a great time to get out and watch the flowers bloom, go on hikes, clean up the garage, and wait patiently until summer arrives.

    I love spring and definitely feel rejuvenated and full of life again. Wish I could feel that throughout the winter.. but I’m ready to celebrate it now! Unfortunately, it snowed here today.. so I’ll have to wait another day! ;/

    Spring means cleaning the yard for a new growing season – adding new flowers. Cleaning and making changes to the house! I love SPRING!
