You and Your World: Spring!

Well, friends, it's almost here - Spring!

As winter cold and snow gives way to warm breezes and spring flowers, let's talk about what this new season means to us.











What's your favorite thing about Spring? Do you have any plans for outdoor activities and adventures? Do you have happy memories of other Springs?

Tell us what you think about Spring!

I just love Spring, and all the pretty flowers!

Vic said...

You would. Stupid fairy.

Spring is damn annoying, if you ask me. All those birds singing while I'm trying to get some sleep!

Candy said...

Spring is exciting to me. A time to take off boots and go barefoot or wear light sneakers. Birds are busy building nests, grass is long and green and I don't have to worry about all the animals feeling cold in the snow. Woods that seemed small become larger when thickened with leaves and each day a new flower appears=then its brothers and sisters. I feel like dancing!

Vic said...

Sounds ghastly, Candy.

Bo said...

So, Candy...do you take off anything besides your shoes? Could be fun, you know.

Candy said...

Oh, Vic, you old sourpuss! Aren't even the nights prettier in springtime? And the blood sweeter?

And Bo, I sure wouldn't tell you! Are you any raunchier in Spring than Winter, or is your prey just easier to catch?

Flower said...

I like Autumn. You might call it Fall? You have to love a season where the sky, the moon and the leaves on the trees harmonise and colour coordinate.

Aidan said...

Spring down here is a lot like the other seasons, but it is a little warmer.

I still don't have to wear a shirt most of the time, which is cool.

I do know my first daughter will be born in the spring. No, Jase, it's not THIS spring! Or even NEXT. Sheesh.

Devi Marconi said...

I'm a big fan of autumn, too, Flower. Spring is lovely, for sure - but somehow I find colorful, falling leaves more tragically beautiful than the vivid blossoms of spring.

I don't know why exactly. Perhaps it's the sadness of autumn that I find fascinating.

These days, though, I don't experience much of the changing seasons. It's always the same temperature down in the caves of Ruby Hollow. A fact that can be both comforting - and predictable.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Um, Aidan? Doesn't it help to have a mate before you start planning the birth of your children? I'm just curious.

Marc said...

He's a Seer, Nutmeg, and he can't help dropping the occasional vision into ordinary conversation.

He has no one in his life as of yet, as he's not of age (in Sentinel that's 24 - he's 22). But he's meant to marry Cassidy, our Lord Prince's daughter. Their fathers arranged it before Aidan was born.

Our winters are so long, that I feel inexpressible joy when Spring finally arrives. Oh to escape the confines of stone walls and take to the moors and woods filled with flowers again!

My favorite time is when the orchards are in blossom, and you can walk through a cloud of white petals like snow, with the warm sun on your shoulders and the breeze in your face.

Now the trees are just beginning to bud and the sap is rising, though I can find a few tiny hyacinths in sheltered spots. The ducks are returning from thes south in long skeins. Spring is coming!

Nutmeg Cross said...

Thanks for explaining, Marc. I'd forgotten that he's a Seer. Seems like that would be both a useful - and a troublesome - talent to have, depending on the vision, of course.

Laura Martone said...

Although autumn is technically my favorite holiday - perhaps for the same reasons that Devi mentioned (plus Halloween is awesome fun, especially in New Orleans) - spring can be a wonderful time... full of hope, full of possibility, and usually signifying, for me, our seasonal move to northern Michigan, where I feel peaceful, rejuvenated, and whole again.

Marenya said...

I should have mentioned that my favorite part of spring is lambing. The little dears are so sweet on their spindly legs!

Candy said...

Oh yes, lambs! I had a pet one named Larry. They really are the sweetest and most playful of critters. Watched "The Secret Garden" (Margaret O'Brien} last night and the pet lamb in that reminded me of my little guy.
Spring, springs. Lambs are sure born with them.

Christine H said...

I didn't know there was a Secret Garden with Margaret O'Brian! Now I'll have to look it up on Netflix.

Terresa said...

Walking barefoot in the green grass with my kids. It's great. Especially since we don't have a dog (yet).
