    The best part about spring is the beautiful weather and its promise that the hot sunny beach days are right around the corner. Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons--longer days and more time to spend with family and friends!

    I agree with hmteacher - I too have a small greenhouse in my backyard and when the weather gets warmer, I absolutely love to be in my garden at every possible opportunity ... planting seeds in my greenhouse, pruning bushes and trees to make them even more gorgeous and laying compost and mulch in readiness for the summer's heat!

    I would love to shed the heavy winter coats, scarf, gloves and hats.

    We just spent, with family from another state, about 2 hours rock climbing and hiking in a nature preserve and park in our city. It was a gorgeous day, about 65 F, and both the kids and the adults had an amazing time. I LOVE spring--the snow is on the way out, flowers and hiking on the way in!

    Shopping!!! Love to get new clothes. Then I start planning our family vacation. Each year we do a road trip. My husband and I discuss where we want to go, then I plan out the route, hotels, etc.

    I am looking forward to walking in the wildlife refuge near my home. It is so peaceful with the animals and landscapes.
