What do you love about Spring?

We have been having such wonderful weather in my neck of the woods. SPRING... I think is my favorite of all seasons!! Weather is not too hot and not too cold.....Just right. Like the porridge Goldilocks found at the three bears house. Spring is the season where everything is new again, farms are welcoming new spring babies, flowers are awakening after their long winter nap, the air even has a new freshness to it. As I have been enjoying the last few days of warm weather, I realized I was actually enjoying the tasks at hand. Is it just me or have you been enjoying cleaning the house, doing the laundry, (I love the freshness you get when the sun and a light breeze dries the laundry on the clothes line :) weeding the flower beds, or any of the chores that have been put off because the weather wasn't right? So, I got to thinking (which can be a scary thing LOL) and asked myself, what is it that makes me so happy about Spring? Here is a list of a few things that I love about Spring and I want to ask all of you...What do you love about Spring??

1. Yardsale season starts (of course first on my list)
2. Warm nights
3. Flea Markets
4. Being able to open your windows
5. Smell of fresh cut grass
6. Spring bulbs emerging
7. Iced Tea
8. Awakening to the songs of the birds that have returned
9. Watching the birds enjoy the new birdbath
10. Days are getting longer
11. Sheets that have hung on the clothes line
12. New spring babies
13. Breezes blowing through lace curtains
14. Music in the park
15. Picnics and BBQ's
16. Going to the Beach
17. Collecting seashells
18. Planting new flowers
19. Going to the County Fair
20. Spring Cleaning
Yes, I love spring cleaning, why you ask? because probably like alot of you, I have packed away items I don't use in the other seasons and it's so fun to find them again, polish them up and brighten my house with them. Changing to lighter linens, softer colors in your pillows, area rugs, decor, etc. can bring a sense of freshness to your home.) Speaking of spring cleaning...I have started some of mine. Since we moved here in October and the winter season started early (I was told) I haven't completely unpacked. So that was my first project during these wonderful days we have been having. And I found a few of my favorite things, not forgotten, just not easily obtainable in my garage, oil paintings, chenille spreads, little doo dads I have collected, but miss having out to look at. Wouldn't you know it, when I found them, my camera decided to be uncooperative, so as soon as I can get it to work again, I will post the pics of my new found old treasures.
Hope you are enjoying nice weather also.......Until later,
