    I can't wait to spend more time outside with my 1 year old son. Winter months give me major cabin fever!

    I love to garden! I have a small greenhouse and garden in my back yard and this is where I spend endless hours in the spring.

    I must actually be the only one that doesn't really like Spring. I prefer the Winter, cold, bulky coats and all. Spring is supposed to be rejuvenation, but just signals the beginning of my hay fever.

    I love spring! One of my favorite reminders is that the sun makes it warm in my house and I can open the windows and let a fresh smelling breeze in! I love spending time outside and shopping for new clothes as well.

    I love being outside. Spring is the time for gardening, hiking, picnics and just enjoying the scenery.

    I love the smell when the windows are open! I am ready to be outside or relaxing inside with the windows open. Spring gives me more energy!

    Spring all the windows & doors get opened as much as possible... like kikilu said.. I love the smell... its like you can smell everything starting to grow... just really fresh smelling.. Lets me know its time to start trying to get grass to grow in the back yard where the dogs have destroyed it over the winter.. LOL I much prefer a green yard to one that looks like a dirt bike track, so I'll be happy with weeds even.
