52 Weeks - Spring

Today's 52 Weeks Blog Challenge topic is what I like best about spring.  Normally, here in Virginia we don't have spring.  We have winter, then milder winter, then a few days of summer, then milder winter again, then a week of summer, then snowy winter, then full on summer.  But this year, we seem to be having an actual spring.  Days in the 50's to low 60's with night time temperatures hovering right at freezing.

I'm actually being reminded of what I like about spring this year.  And those things are, in no particular order:

So what about you?  What's your favorite spring thing?


  1. All of the above!!!
    I agree with that season thing. Here in MD spring and fall seem to have disappeared. Yesterday was very springy. I could use more of that.

  2. Jelly Beans!!!

    We are really having a Spring this year to...or so it seems so far (a few days). I love sitting on the patio after work with a glass of wine.
