    Whether it is the change in the air or the chance to get some vitamin D straight from the sun, spring is quickly becoming my favorite time of year!

    I love the spring! Time to work on the yard and clean everything up after the long dreary winter we get here in Ohio.

    Spring! I love the fresh smell of the air outside and the "greening up" of the grass and all the beautiful Spring flowers popping up to say "Spring has Sprung"!

    I love spending more time outside in the Spring time... not to hot like in the summer time and Spring comes right at the right time because I know I get sick of the winter time and Spring vacations are some of the best vacations I've had.

    I love being outside with my family when the weather gets warmer! We love having picnics at the park and riding our bikes!

    I love being outside. The BBQ's, friends over having a bon fire, roasting hotdogs and marshmellows, riding quads. I love the spring and summer months. I cant wait. Bring on the warmer weather!!

    I voted "spending more time outside" but what goes hand in hand for marking the beginning of spring are the days I can throw open the windows and let the spring air into my home and the days when hanging laundry on the line to dry becomes pleasant again! Happy Spring!

    Smells different -fresh mowed lawn, lilacs, sounds different with song birds, children in the neighborhood outside, the feeling of renewal and coming out of a fog and driving with no coat or shoes! FLIP FLOPS! and Gettin someone else to do my windows--like Tom Sawyer--might have to bribe my kids! I was rasied on a farm so spring is the beginning of a whole new way of life. My favorite time of year! I am a birdwatcher and love taking pics of them.
