Spring Things!

Look at me! I'm posting again already!

Don't get too used to it...truth be told, I just couldn't resist today's prompt in my Blogging for Scrapbookers class. Who doesn't want to share some of their favorite things??

Since I'm completely, utterly tired of winter and I feel that spring is finally in the air, I have chosen to share 5 things I love about spring:

The first green, growing things in my garden...
 I love receive my White Flower Farm catalog every spring. I thumb through the pages drooling over pictures of gorgeous flowers and dreaming of what plants to buy for my garden this year.

Long walks:

I just bought brand new spiffy shoes for my walks! I had foot surgery in December and the recovery was much harder than I anticipated. My favorite store to go to for athletic shoes is Fleet Feet Sports. They have the best customer service...and in-shop doggie friends!!

 Cherry Blossoms!

I love, love, love that the cherry blossoms around the tidal basin in D.C. always are at peak bloom right around my birthday!!
Read about the Cherry Blossom Festival here.

Next fav: Time to ditch the jackets! Gearing up in spring attire: sunglasses, hats, and smiles!!
And finally...azaleas!
 Ah, nostalgia...the azaleas bloomed early last year and I posted all about it. Read more here.

I also want to add that one of my very first blogs posts was about some favorite things and it was complete with a layout...if you'd like to see it, go here.

What do you love about spring?

It must be a relief to see the sun and snippets of green after a long winter!
