It is a truth universally accepted that (channeling my inner Jane) spring always holds a promise of good things to come. It’s more than just about hearing birds chirping early in the morning, or an official start to longer days and shorter nights. While it has a lot to do about the weather, but I think it’s more than that; it’s nature’s way of telling us all that winter has finally bid adieu and won’t be back for the next 6 or 7 months.

There are many things to love about this season. Sunshine and spring showers always equate to rainbows! Any who doesn’t love rainbows? The grass is green and the trees are in bloom and so are the pretty flowers (cherry blossoms and tulips are just love!). And there’s the anticipation that summer is just around the corner... and so, you start to plan your holidays! Ah Spring! It makes us feel all young again. It’s a clearing, refreshing and renewing season and it literally puts a spring in your step (it does to mine)
However, having said all that, spring still is not my favorite season :). I am a late summer early autumn kind of gal when autumn is chasing summer away and the latter is adamant to stay. The season when farmer’s market and the grocery aisle spoils you with bountiful produce. I digress!
Well anyways on to spring, despite it being the prettiest and daintiest season (me thinks!), there are also several reasons why it is booted out as being my fave. I am not really keen on the fact that the weather send really mixed messages, so you never really know when you need a hat or bring an umbrella. And on top of that, bugs, bugs and more bugs! So you better do your spring clean. And while pretty flowers brighten your day, the dreaded hay fever surely does not. It also means that seasonal cyclists are back on the road. Oh yeah…it’s probably me being a lousy driver and having inhibitions of sharing the road (oh well…)
