“I am so done with this winter”

Winter Blizzard I just can’t take one more day of subzero weather, and wind so strong that I if I stood on my sidewalk I could make it to the corner without ever taking a single step. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter. I just don’t love this one anymore. Last week I asked some people, “What is it that you like most about spring?” Here are some of the answers I got.

Spring means I don’t have to warm up my car for half an hour or shovel snow.

  1. I start walking again in the spring. I love looking for signs of leaves sprouting, birds singing, that warm feeling when you walk outside.
  2. Fresh, cool wind blowing on a beautiful sunny day.
  3. I like to hear all the day sounds of birds chirping, woodpeckers hammering away.
  4. I like the smell of fresh mown grass.
  5. I love the sounds of spring. Birds chirping, thunderstorms, kids outside playing.
  6. Love riding my motorcycle down the back roads.
  7. The smell of dinner grilling in the backyard.
  8. Washing all the salt of my car. Finding out that my car is really red.
  9. The warm weather.
  10. You can open the windows in your house and let the stuffy winter blues out.
  11. Riding my moped around town.
  12. No more HEATING BILLS.
  13. I don’t have to look at dirty snow piles anymore.
  14. I don’t have to put on three layers of clothing before I go outside.
  15. Going to the lake for a lazy day on the boat with family and friends.
  16.  Flip Flops
  17.  I can say, “Honey, I’m going golfing!”
  18. Fresh picked strawberries.
  19. Planting my garden and growing fresh vegetables (carrots, tomatoes)

What are some of the reasons you like spring?

Take time to go for a walk and pick some spring flowers.
