What is it about the Spring?

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Some people think of New Year's as a time for starting over and change. I know I joined SP just after New Year's in 2012 so I feel that need to make resolutions (and try to stick with them).

But still, something about the spring always appeals to me like no other time. It seems to inspire me and motivate me. I feel like I have new energy and I want to tackle new projects, and just get stuff DONE. There's probably some biological explanation dating back to our ancestors, but all I know is that I enjoy feeling this way every year around this time.

This past weekend, I planted all my annual flowers, deck boxes, pots, etc. Planted some container tomatoes on the deck, set up the fountain in the garden (love the sound of running water out there and inside with the window open). Took a long bike ride. I finally found and bought a new chair for my MIL, which I'd been trying to find for a few weeks The hummingbird feeder is set up and I'm watching them through the kitchen window. I just picked a big bouquet of lilacs from the yard and arranged a vase on the table. LOL, just wish there was some way to bottle how I feel this time of year, and pull it out in the middle of winter.

    I just planted flowers also. I love seeing them each day. I also love watching my roses start to bloom.

    Happy Spring.

    My water garden is making soothing sounds on my deck; my lilacs are just about in bloom! Is anything better than May?

    I'm with u Jan. I love the spring. I wish it could b spring all year round. I love the flowers, trees blooming, birds singing and the woodpecker tearing up the trees in my yard lol I love the sound of it and to watch it hammer away. I love the temperatures the most. It rejuvenates me and I want to be outside as much as possible especially after the horrible winter we just went through. Hope u have a terrific Thursday Jan.
    Ur friend, Theresa

    I know what you mean about this time of year. Everything old is new again and the possibilities are endless. Hope. And I like to take control of my life and make everything as nice as possible - for however long it will last! Being outside makes me feel more alive. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    beautiful my very favorite of all time, lilacs, so many memories, and out here I have planted a hybrid lilac that needs no frost freeze or something, anyway, I had my son take it out this spring, just a bare spindly thing, like no lilac I ever knew.'I love the spring also, I get outside and get so much done, and everything looks great, but then, the heat and I do not do real well out in it, so gradually my pretty yard and garden and flowers are no more.
    but really enjoying it now.,
