#10 When you leave the house to go to work, it is not dark anymore. Yay!
#9 The smell of spring flowers and warm wet soil.
#8 The first mosquito will find its way into your home. Luckily, they are still a bit drowsy and weak, so you can kill them in no time.
#7 When you get up on Saturday morning, you will inevitably find your neighbor working in the yard. And you will feel bad about the fact that you are still in your PJs while other people are already busy.
#6 Walking the dog doesn't feel as much as a burden as it did in sleet and ice-cold winds. It even starts to feel like fun again!
#5 Sneezes. The first days of spring come hand in hand with the first waves of pollen. But have you ever noticed how allergy sneezes sound different from cold sneezes? People with hayfever sneeze a bit like guinea pigs, if you ask me. (And I am allowed to say that because I am occasionally one of them.)
#4 You look into your wardrobe and realize you have nothing to wear that goes with the weather. And those colors there, they are so last year!
#3 The trees and the first flowers are in bloom. This week, I have spotted the first tulips in the neighborhood. And I am a sucker for those bright pink cherry trees!
#2 The color green loses all its yuckiness and starts to look like something that might even find its way into my living room, maybe in the form of pillows or blankets.
#1 Who let the dogs out? The most definite sign around here that spring is finally here is my beloved pal Coca. As soon as she stands in front of the French doors leading to the garden and starts to stare longingly into the sunshine, it is definitely spring! There's no other dog in the world who loves sunshine and lazy days in the garden as much as this pooch.
What are your spring favorites? Or are you one of those poor souls who just can't enjoy spring because of the pollen? Let me know!
