Welcome, Spring.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

At long last, it's the first day of spring. It's still just 35 degrees in Brooklyn as I write this, but I'm set to take a long walk in the sunshine to Greenpoint this morning. (I figure by the time I get there, I'll be warm enough to believe winter's over.)

 

How will you spend your day? A few ways to commemorate the new season:

-Read a poem.
-Eat something sweet.
-Put flowers on your head.
-Dance.
-Sing.

Happy spring, everyone.

Oh, I love that Neruda poem. Toronto is still frozen, too... miserably so. Yesterday while out for a drive I spotted *multiple* houses with Christmas decorations still up.... like, really? It's the middle of March, people! I'm longing for warmth and sunshine and flowers. Happy Spring to you, dear Shoko!

I had no idea how the seasons changed me until it got warmer here in Tennessee, and I was so unbelievably happy! I love Spring (only because I love flowers). I can't wait to read that poem. Happy Spring Shoko! xo

Nice list of things to do to celebrate the arrival of spring! I plan to get through that list in it's entirety today. Enjoy your walk. After two days of blizzards I'm planning on going out too.

One of the (very few) downsides to living in Southern California is the lack of seasons. There are subtle shifts in the scenery and weather (ah, the blooms!), but overall it just kinda stays the same (which you know, since you lived here =]). I do miss that scent of spring; the melting snow, the little green buds, the wet dirt. My mom was telling me that she "smelled spring" for the first time the other day, and I knew exactly what she was talking about. I'm happy on behalf of everyone who will get to be experiencing that soon =]

P.S. That Pablo Neruda quote/print is wonderful.

Oh how I love Pablo Neruda!

Hard to believe it is actually spring because it is so cold! Hopefully it rights itself pretty soon and we can enjoy it!

Happy spring, Shoko! I love your tips on how to welcome it back (especially putting flowers on your head). I hope you had a great walk this morning! Here, the temperatures were down to 7 degrees - brrrr!

What a happy collection you've got here, today! I hope there was a spring in your step on your walk to Greenpoint :-)

Happy Spring! Dancing and singing are fantastic ways to welcome back a new season. It's officially autumn where I am :)

I spent the first day of spring caring for 2 of my sick family members (yucky virus!) while also trying to be as upbeat as possible for my little boy who turned 7 yesterday! It doesn't even feel like spring here in GA, but luckily we've got the bright sun to make it more believable:)

It was 15 degrees in Chicago on the first day of Spring, so I feel ya that Spring may have missed her invitation to the change of season party.

Regardless, this weekend I'll be celebrating spring by cleaning out and organizing a current junk closet that we'll be devoting to board games we've recently started collecting from vintage shops. If those aren't hte perfect park past time I don't know what is.

Happy Spring! xx

Happy spring, everyone!

Jenny, happy birthday to your son! And I hope your family feels better!

Eileen, that sounds like a very satisfying way to celebrate the season! :)

Oh that poem- what a good one. And I just re-read your equals article. Even now in March I can still relate and need to start over once again. It’s been a hell of a year, but maybe the spring will bring new things.
