  7. Carolyn Harness says:

    I love spring for so many reasons but mainly because it promises endless possibilities. New life and projects. Opportunities to make memories and have experiences with those I love. Finally, you can’t beat the color scheme, nature sure has an amazing color pallet.

    I have always enjoyed all the lovely blooming things that come with spring, but the last several years I have also come to appreciate the many birds that return to the area where I live in the spring. There are so many interesting and colorful birds to see if you spend time outside looking around.

    What is not to love about Spring!
    Spring bulbs blooming;
    Trees in Blossom;
    Daylight saving ends;
    Birds are chirping and nesting;
    Lorna celebrates her birthday!
    We celebrate our (53rd) wedding anniversary!

  32. Gail B. says:

    I love Spring even though March & April tend to be our snowiest months, in Colorado. It’s warm enough that even with 6-12 inches, it will melt within a day or two. The tulips & daffodils LOVE the Spring snow storms; it’s like a little blanket for them.

  33. Danette C Stankovich says:

    I would love to win any of these cute item! My favorite thing about Spring is getting the camper organized and taking our first camping trip after the long winter. Thank you!

  37. Maridee L Hargis says:

  38. Kimberly says:

    Oh how I look forward to spring here in AZ because it is so beautiful with all the butterflies before we go into our high temps in Summer. The cactus flowers are out in the Spring and the baby birds come to our feeders! Thank you for the chance….

  39. Tonna says:

    No more rain! Spring means you can go outdoors without getting wet! Come on Spring!

  40. Brenda C. says:

    My favourite part of spring is the cardinals and robins singing away in the morning. It lightens the day before it begins.

  41. KatieQ says:

    The Garden Club in my town has a program called “Golden Roads” Over the years, they have planted thousands of daffodil bulbs. They are planted near town buildings, including the library, along the larger roads, and tucked into traffic triangles throughout the area. It’s such a delightful surprise to turn a corner and see the bright yellow heads of daffodils nodding in the breeze.

  42. Patti says:

    Return of the mountain bluebirds

  43. Carol says:

    Spring is walking–hearing birds sing, finding the cracked robin eggs, the glorious blooms of all the various flowers and trees, smells of ‘spring’ and chatting with neighbors and all the children laughing.

  44. Kathy R. says:

    I enjoy seeing all of the buds coming out. Yesterday I spotted two Cardinals hopping about in the Bradford Pear tree out the kitchen window.

  45. Carmie Anderson says:

    See the flowers pop up around my yard. Fresh air can be brought into the house!
