I like getting started with yard work in the spring. :)

Gwen said...

I love Springtime!! Everything seems new and fresh... The air is clear and warm during the daytime, and yet still crisp and cool at night... The fire flies begin to put on their show at dark.. and the bluebirds lay their eggs. Before long, we'll be hearing the baby birds chirping for their Mama to bring them a worm! :-)

Our house is surrounded by woods so looking out the window can be pretty bleak in the winter. When spring comes, the trees and flowers return and everything is a beautiful green and throbbing with the songs of birds. My favorite thing about spring is the bright green color of the new leaves.

I totally understand the feeling tired. I've been dealing with that for the past few months nd keep hoping it will go away soon.

You always have the best prizes in your giveaways. I could REALLY use those curved pins. I looked for over an hour tonight thinking I had bought some but finally came to the conclusion I hadn't.

VickiT said...

Spring brings new to the world with all the beautiful green growth in the grass and always puts me into the mood to clean my house, or at least to begin organizing different areas in my home. Plus the best part about Springtime is when all my beautiful lilac bushes bloom and we can open our windows (if those cold temps will go away) and the smell of those wonderful lilacs fill the inside of our home.

The first hints of spring in our area include blooming of red bud trees, dogwoods, and early azaleas. I love to see these. Right now we are smelling magnolia blossoms.
