One of my favorite signs of spring, and definitely a first sign of spring, is the morning song of the birds in the trees outside our bedroom window. The first time you hear it, you're reminded of the winter silence and now you know spring is in the air.
Another of my favorite signs of spring is the buds and bulbs popping up from the ground in the garden. As spring fever hits, Ken and I have now taken to walking outside and peering down into the dirt searching for those first signs of "buddage".
The first day the temps go above 55, and you can smell spring in the air, is another favorite sign of mine. We usually then pull the grill out of the garage and excitedly plan our first BBQ menu of the season! (Couldn't find a photo of Ken at the grill)
Flipping the calendar page to April - another favorite sign. We have a bunch of spring birthdays among our family and friends, so as soon as I turn the page to April, I get excited about Easter and Mother's Day and all of the birthdays (mine included!) that fall in between. (If you zoom in, you can see the two photos on the calendar are mine and Ken's birthdays!)
Adding one more to this list, a favorite sign of spring is beginning talks about camping! Ken always took a spring camping trip with the guys before we were married, and has done it on occasion since, but we more enjoy camping together and with groups of friends. Starting those plans and choosing new places to visit is on my list of favorite signs of spring.
