“Spring! I can't wait to throw open windows for fresh air. I'm looking forward to getting out of my sweats into shorts, tank tops and flip flops, but I'm really looking forward to longer warmer days.” Ruth A. Casie, www.ruthacasie.com
"What I like most about spring is the fresh green smell of new grass in the sun . . . it never smells quite the same any other time of the year. It's the scent of hope and joy and new possibilities." Shawna Reppert, www.shawna-reppert.com
“Getting up at the crack of dawn in the spring has it's advantages. I love to crack the window as the birds wake and hear their excitement for the coming day. Then as the day progresses, there is nothing more refreshing than fully opening the windows and letting in the fresh spring air.” Maureen Bonatch, www.maureenbonatch.com
“Since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved the flowers of Spring – the crocuses, iris, tulips and others that bravely poke their heads up, sometimes too soon, before Winter is entirely done with her bluster. The colors of Spring flowers are such a beautiful palette of pastels. I don’t care for lilies, however; they give me migraines!” Veronica Scott, www.veronicascott.wordpress.com

“With the weather turning warmer, I can finally take my two wiener dogs for walks around the neighborhood. Rusty in particular needs to lose those extra ounces he gained over the winter when they decided it was too cold to be outside for any length of time other than what it took for them to do their business.” Linda Mooney, www.lindamooney.com
“I can hardly wait for this year’s shipment of baby chicks to arrive. And I’m crossing my fingers that all the tulip bulbs I planted last year actually come up. I’ve never grown them before, but I remember picking them from a neighbor’s front yard when I was five because I thought they were pretty!” Dani Harper, www.daniharper.com
“Every year I look forward to the cherry blossoms. There's something about the way they perfume the air for entire blocks that's almost magical. But this year, I have something even more magical to look forward to: the arrival of my first grandchild!” PG Forte, www.pgforte.com
I love being able to walk without trudging through snow! Also, the fresh scents of new grass, and the very first flower buds gives me such a sense of renewal. Spring re-energizes me!” Cindy Spencer Pape, www.cindyspencerpape.com…..
"I always look forward to those first spring flowers. Daffodils, crocus, the blooming wild cherry and redbud trees... All make me so happy. Even if it turns cold or snows again, I know the end is in sight." Joely Sue Burkhart, www.joelysueburkhart.com
