Things We Love About Spring!

by Kassandra Lamb (on behalf of the whole gang) ~ I figured we’d take a break this week from the Forgiveness posts (Part III coming next week) with a more lighthearted post about Spring. So I asked the other misterio press authors what they love (or hate) about Spring. Here are their answers:

Vinnie Hansen:

The flowers!! (A rather short answer, until you see her garden. This pic is definitely worth a thousand words.)

Candace J. Carter:

I love the blooming flowers and budding trees but hate the pine pollen. Some of the people around here call it “Carolina Snow.”

Shannon Esposito:

When the rains come and the snowbirds (the human kind) go.

When everything starts to grow again, and new life begins… baby alligators, baby sandhill cranes, even baby lizards that I have to fish out of the pool are a reminder that the dark, cold winter is over for now.

Liz Boeger:

EVERYTHING! The bright blue skies and anticipation of beauty to come. The leaves budding out on my crepe myrtles. I have two new baby pineapples that just surprised me in the garden. It will take a few years and I’ll have to ward off the squirrels before we can enjoy the fruit.

Things we love about spring! Flowers outside my window.

And yes, Shannon, the sandhill crane babies, too!

Kass Lamb:

I love it when the weather warms up enough that I can sit out on my screened porch to read or even when I’m editing. I love being outside. And like others have said the flowers are awesome.

Here’s the view out my office window in early Spring.

Sasscer Hill:

Love the warmth; hate the pollen! The five Legustrum evergreens I put in had beautiful new shoots in late February. But a late freeze left the tender pale leaves brown and brittle. The jasmine vines survived, however.

Things we love about spring!

Kathy Owen:

I love the bravery of spring, where tender shoots and flowers push themselves out of the protective ground and OWN it. There are no guarantees they won’t get obliterated by snow, wind, storms – and sometimes they are – but they do it anyway. Kind of defiant, don’t you think?

What about you? What do you love (or hate) about Spring?

    Spring is a beautiful season. The beautiful flowers/plants, the sunshine, a time to get outside and enjoy what the outdoors offers. Just so beautiful
