Saturday: Question of the Week~

I really want to find out more about you -  all my wonderful readers.  So I thought that it might be fun to throw out a random question to you on Saturdays.  I'll tell you what I think, and then I'd love to hear what you all have to say.



So, if you feel like it, go ahead and leave me your answer to this one...

What is your favorite thing about Spring?

My favorite thing about spring is actually when daylight savings time "springs forward" and it starts to stay light later.  I just love having more light in the evening!

What about you??

I wish it would just stay forward or back. Daylight savings makes no sense and I'm tempted to move to Arizona.

I like the last chances of nice weather before it starts getting hot. And Easter.

I like the warm weather ..eventhough here in the Bay Area we dont get alot of warm weather in Spring :(

I like the sight of the buds beginning to open on the trees-a real feeling of fresh beginnings!!

The return of "color" to the Midwest. After 5 months of "gray" (streets, skies, grass, trees), it's nice to see GREEN again!

I love not having to bundle my 3 kids up in winter gear when we leave the house! A huge time saver and much easier to get them all buckled in their carseats!

Joyce said...

I love watching everything coming alive again - the leaves on the trees, the flowers blooming and bees buzzing around! I want to be outdoors all the time! :-)

Living in the countryside, I just said yesterday morning as we were running errands, " I love seeing all the green on the trees and grass and the freshly tilled brown earth of the farmland." The farmers are preparing their fields for summer crops, the lawns are freshly mowed, the flower gardens are covered in new mulch and the reds, yellow and pinks of the tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are in full bloom. It is a beautiful time of year.

I love waking up and it's already light. I love being able to sit outside for my morning coffee and I especially love that my cute little chipmunks start to visit me again! Oh and I love to go out in the bush and spot bears and their cubs!

zaduzbina said...

I love being able to sit in the sun and plant new plants into the earth.

Allison@FabRehab said...

I love being able to have my boys outside every afternoon (barring rain). They can do what little boys do without driving me nuts :)

Elizabeth said...

Every single day there is a new gift in nature... a full stalk of asparagus grows overnight, the fruit trees suddenly have flowers, a whiff of honeysuckle or wisteria in the air, a freshly plowed field is brown one day and green the next, the list goes on and on... daffodils, iris, wee baby calves and fawns and the birds returning from places south.

I love to have coffee on my deck on a slightly chilly morning, when it's still quiet in our neighborhood. I love when the weather finally breaks and you can chat with neighbors that have cooped up all winter. Michigan winters are looong.

PicturePerfectPixies said...

The smells...the hyacinth, the lilacs, the cut grass, I love the smells of spring!

LL from KS said...

I love the way spring smells! The fresh air, the way it smells after a spring rain, the way a newly mown lawn smells! Spring is a new beginning, watching everything come back to life reminds me that I can begin anew as well!

Anne said...

Me too!!! I love that extra hour of light in the evening. I also love the day I see crocuses and snowdrops beginning to bloom.

Another fresh new start!

Rebecca @ Time to Organize said...

I love driving and seeing all the wildflowers. The bluebonnets here are so beautiful right now! I also love seeing all of the butterflies. The weather is just perfect and the kids can play outside longer! Sping is a wonderful time of year.+

Mother4 said...

My favorite thing about spring is my peonies blooming! Since I live in Texas, they are not common here, but I have managed to grow quite a few!

Princess Kate said...

I love waking up to the sun, hearing the birds chirping and feeling the warm of the day. Nothing better. Happy Easter to you all.

Carolyn said...

I love watching all the beautiful colors of Spring unfolding - flowers, trees, grass ... everything is so vibrant and fresh. And, the longer daylight hours is definitely my second most favorite thing about Spring!

How to choose just one! There are so many things I love about spring but I think my favorite is spending more time outside - I spend more time outside in the winter than I do in the summer when it's unbearable hot but spring & fall I'm out every day as much I can - walking, gardening & just enjoying the perfect weather.

Laura@Elegant Nest said...

Love the warmer weather. Time to go outside and work in the yard adding flowers and clipping blooms to bring inside to enjoy! Oh and my other favorite...new pedicures and sandals! :)

tessie said...

I love SO MANY things...the birds singing out side my bedroom window to wake me up, the smell of newly mown grass, baseball starting its season and all the beautiful colors!

curlyrose49 said...

I love that it is warm and the beauy of plants coming alive. It get so hot here in the summer that you really don't want to go out side but now you can take a walk and see everyone flowers starting to bloom. We can go outside and bar-b-q and have parties on the back patio. Sandy from Ca

Shari Steelsmith Duffin said...

The flowers. Hands down.

Laura from Top This Top That said...

I love all the signs of new growth, vibrant colors emerging and longer days to enjoy it!

I love the smell of our dogwood tree as it's preparing to bloom in spring. I also love planning for all the changes in my yard. Combing through magazines (and now Pinterest) for ideas is so much fun.

Jenny@daysofchalkandchocolate said...

Using our fire pit with our neighbors. The kids run around and we sit around the fire. I also love our dogwood tree!

Cassi @ Stop And Smell The Roses said...

This is like a no brainer, but Spring is my favorite season and is so because I LOVE it when everything turns green! I love how everything just comes to life and my kids love to be outside and stuff starts to grow! I LOVE the colors!

I Know The Plans I Have For You said...

Hi Wendy, love your idea about Saturday questions! I love of course lighter nights, but my favorite thing is the smell of everything blooming and the sound of lawn mowers! Happy Easter!

Lilacs!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i love the first signs of growth- the first bulbs just poking out of the ground, the first blossoms on the trees.... and i love hearing all the birds chirp when i go for a walk in the morning. my walks are so quiet in the winter, but now it's a symphony of nature!

Bliss said...

While warmer temp's are always nice, the best part is not having any snow to shovel no matter if it's warm or not.

Debby said...

My favorite thing about spring is that it feels crisp and clean. The mornings cool and the afternoons warm but without the heat of summer yet. So many things in bloom and the grass is a beautiful shade of green.

Kendall said...

My favorite thing are the beautiful blooming flowers in all of their glory!

I love all of the colors!

I love seeing our dogwood tree in full bloom...it hasn't happened yet but look forward to it every spring.

Getting all the dreary dark colors, blankets, put away and redressing home with light colors, opening windows/doors, hanging out my laundry especially sheets to have that wonderful clean scent on them when I make the bed up fresh.
We get alot of wind as we live on top of hill and it seems to freshen everything. Sometimes it's a bit of a battle to get laundry hung on lines at all. If a breeze isn't blowing while I'm hanging laundry I'll ask God for a nice breeze to dry things. Son on a gun if a breeze doesn't pop up. Coincidence?

Going outside without having to bundle up! Love being out enjoying the sunshine and the blooms with my little boy and his new puppy. :)

Ria said...

Tulips are my favorite thing. And warm sunshine... I love spring!

Heidi Perez said...

What happy comments!!

*One* of my favorite things is (like your picture above) taking cuttings from blossoming trees to bring inside :). This afternoon I took some cuttings from a forsythia bush and am enjoying them in my kitchen :). Next up, lilac!
