50 Things I Like About Spring...

You may ask,
"Why are you writing about Spring
a month after the fact.

Well, in Cleveland,
March 21 is sort of a "pre-spring"
or
Springtime Eve
By April 21, we're pretty much out of the woods when it comes to Blizzards and such..
so here goes...

50 Things I Like About
Spring!!!

Heavy coats to the rear of the closet - light jackets to the front!
open windows for fresh air
strawberries are in season

capris
sitting outside for lunch
neighbors emerge from hibernation
My Birthday!
linen jackets
fresh salads
Easter




sunshine
tiny buds peeking out of the soil
Memorial Day
flowering trees







bright blue skies
umbrellas
my first sign of tanning
people on bikes
cantalope
cookouts
dandelions
my hair blowing in the breeze
Mother's Day
a tall glass of water with a slice of lemon
people-watching while waiting for the bus
motorcycles
thunderstorms
colorful gardens
farmer's open-air markets
iced tea
new neighbors
billowing curtains
getting in shape
sitting on the stoop of my apartment
bird's songs
fresh fruit
the scent of lilac bushes
moms with strollers
the unexpected snow storm ;-)
taking walks
spring cleaning
bouquets of daffodils
runners and walkers
floral body sprays
my cloth slouch bag
Robin red-breasts
joggers
driving with the windows down
rainbows
the end of tax season!!

Oh, I'm with you. I love spring for all these reasons and more. Thank you for the things you thought of that I didn't. Now I have even more to say "Thank you" for.

I am so with you. I'm happy we're actually getting a spring in WI this year. Usually we go straight from winter into summer!
