Fresh Beginnings – Why I Love Spring


“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: “Winter is dead.”

~A. A. Milne

I love to breathe in the fresh spring air.  There is nothing like it.  When I wake up to the birds singing, it’s invigorating.  I just love the idea of life renewed.  I love that it surrounds us.  For me, it gives me hope for a brighter future.

In honor of spring – I want to celebrate the freshness of spring.  I know that springtime is really coming when I see…

Azaleas and Rhodos

The fresh pink vibrant color of our Azaleas and the potential of the Rhododendron.  What spectacular beauty it is soon to bring.

Girl with bare feet

Little girls traversing the grass with bare feet.

Rose bushes in bloom

The fresh dew on the newly blossomed rose bush.

New buds and sprouts

New buds of growing trees, and new sprouts of bountiful pink and white Peony blossoms.

Hydreangea leaves and grass

Fresh new deep green leaves of what will be vibrant purple and dark blue Hydrangea blossoms come July – and the turning green from the winter brown – Zoysia grass.

Cherry trees and tulips

Of course, the Cherry Trees, and Tulips.

Fresh Smell of cherry blossoms

The Cherry blossoms in their fresh glory!

Blasted Weeds

And of course what always comes with new life, new love, new beginnings – the blasted weeds.

And last but definitely not least…

Ribs on the Barbie

The smell of fresh smokin’ ribs on the Barbie!

Oh yeah!

That’s what I’m talking about!

What do you love about springtime?

  6. Lisa, such a beautiful post. Love all the flowers. We don’t get the same spring here so I actually miss the extreme season change at times. Btw, I moved from Little Artists !
