Happy First Day of Spring!

This is a day most of us in the Northern Hemisphere have waited for! Spring is a time of rebirth and growth. It’s the season of blooms in their beautiful pastel colors- a time when everything reawakens from it’s long winter’s slumber.

When I think of Spring, I think of the colorful pink, red, white, and yellow blooms of Azalea bushes. I think of cherry blossoms, I think of daffodils or buttercups- whatever you prefer to call them.

I think of baby birds and bunny rabbits. I think of walking in the park on warm, sunny days with cool breezes and sitting in my backyard swing while the pets play in the grass.

I think of little ones in their Easter dresses or suits trotting around with their little baskets hunting for Easter eggs. I think of the Resurrection. I think of birds singing in the trees and butterflies dancing in the sun.

I also think of kids riding their bicycles in the neighborhood streets and cars full of teens driving around with the music blaring.

And I think of cool nights and the glowing lights of fireflies blinking in the twilight.

What do you think of when you think of Spring?

Wishing you all a joyous season whether it’s spring or fall in your Hemisphere.

  1. Spring often means warmer, more dry/sunny weather, which means less physical pains… 😊
    Plus not needing heavy, thick clothing… Being able to sit on my balcony in the sun with a cool drink and a good book. Flowers coloring the streets. Hay fever πŸ˜‚ oh the sneezing joy!

  2. Happy Springtime Cherie! Here in the UK, the weather this time of year is less predictable. This is the time of year we can get all four seasons in the same day.

  3. Beautiful words and images Cherie. Wishing you a joyous, hope filled and wonderful season. Here in Australia it’s Autumn but the last week where I’ve been it’s felt like summer. Sending you lots of love and warm hugs my friend 🧑🌷

    Spring brings love at first, because nature plays a colourful role.

  6. Spring is renewal and rebirth! When we emerge from the cocoon of winter coats and woolen socks and don our bright colors and strappy sandals to dance in the warmth!!

  7. Happy Spring! Weather is getting warmer here too these days, tho very wet and windy. I love the spring, signs of new life. I can’t wait till I can get out! I see the doctor Thurs, see how well my broken ankle has healed, and when I can start walking again and ditch the crutches. I get my independence back for the warmer weather coming! Something I am really looking forward too!

  8. I think of longer daylight hours; walks in the countryside with friends; blossoms, flowering bulbs and fresh baby-green leaves. I think of Lent and the hope of the resurrection.

    • Absolutely! πŸ’― So beautiful! I love the baby green grass! Sometimes I’ll be driving and look across a field and see that fresh green grass that looks laid out like a carpet! πŸ’–πŸ’πŸŒΉ

    • I’m with you there! The change of the seasons has always filled me with hope, especially Spring! I love the colorful flowers, the baby birds crying from their nests, the bunny rabbits, the fresh baby green grass! It always uplifts me! πŸ’–πŸŒžπŸ’πŸŒ»πŸŒΉ
