    I am one of those strange people who absolutely loves winter so I am always sad to see it go, and don't look forward to the bare, brown ugliness we have once the snow melts and before the spring colors come. I do enjoy spending time outside and playing in my flower garden so once the flowers start to come up, and the weather is consistently above 60 I do come around to enjoying spring. One thing I love about spring...Barbeque!

    I can't wait for Spring to start, love the different light, the smells, the flowers but there is one down point and I already suffer from it. Hay fever, last week it became warmer and I already was two days sick. But I love to wake up in the morning before the men do, make myself a good cup of coffee and read a magazine or book on the patio.

    spring makes me think of Easter. when i was young , girls had a new dress, black patent shoes, and hat and gloves. also, Easter egg hunts and a large family meal. Daffodils and Easter Lillies , warmer weather, and a fresh coconut cake also welcome spring.

    I am looking forward to spending more time outsides and setting up a garden. Fresh vegetables are a plus to help loose the 'winter' weight.

    WOW! I love Spring... Why? Well for starters, it happens to be my birthday, March 28! I love to go outside and go to the park, ride my bicycle, go to Adventure Island Water Park, and Busch Gardens! Winters i dont do much outside. Spring me into the Springtime air!

    It is kind of hard to tell the difference in the seasons in Texas ,but I love when the weather is perfect to spend time outside before it gets too hot here!

    I can't wait to get my hands in the flower, herb and vegetable gardens! The garden catalogs are pouring in everyday. I've already ordered a few seeds. I'm looking forward to cooking up a few new recipes for spring, too.

    I love when spring is finally here, can shed all the coats and spend much more time outside with the kids. I don't like all of the pollen & allergies that come with spring though.
