What is your favorite early sign of Spring?
What do you look forward to the most every winter when Spring is about to occur: the return of certain birds? Plants peeping through the soil? Walking barefoot in the grass? Shelving your winter coat and breaking out your summer clothes?
I love the return of the Robins and the blooming of Daffodils. That bright punch of yellow before the trees start to green out again is wonderful Oh, and the smell of soil when I start planting seeds - I may be weird, but I find the smell intoxicating after a long winter.
ChristinS, :-) of course you're weird (that's a good thing), and I too find the smell of fresh Spring dirt wonderful when I'm planting new little lives into my yard. Daffodils, robins, and especially irises are some more of my favorites.
I love when the snow flakes become rain drops, like beating little drummers, pounding life back into the landscape. Warmer breezes cleaning up the debris of a long fruitless sleep.
When the mallards no longer fly in formation, of many, but in twos of the promise of new precious life I know springtime is on the edge of arrival.
The birds chirping, singing, searching for food - all in preparation to bring up their young ones!
I watch out for the first wild flowers that start growing under the hedgerows and in the woods here in the UK. Bluebells, dandelions, stitchwort (a beautiful intense white flower) and garlic mustard which we call Jack by the Hedge. These all signify warmer weather. Hooray!!
Then I keep an eye out for the swallows returning each year from Africa - we always know it's going to be alright if the swallows return and start their wondrous skimming aerobatic flights.
Right now we're just about in full swing.Leaves are massing, birds nest building and laying and bees buzzing all over the place.
My favorite time is when the birds start appearing again, & singing every morning..Also the trees when they start blossoming, & new life is forming..But if i had to choose my most favorite time of the year, that would be when all the sexy girls start wearing their short skirts again!lol
I so love to see the first robin and the first tulip pop through the soil. The you know finally spring is here!
My favourite early sign of spring is when all the flowers start blooming, the leaves of the trees start returning, and the birds tweeting in my garden. I love it when the tulips and the daffodils start flowering. The birds start coming in to my garden again. Brighter mornings as well and better sunny days.
