    I love Spring because it means I can start my seeds indoors for my garden….I grow a number of veggies and some flowers….I love starting a plant from a seed and watch it grow and grow until I can plant it in my garden, then waiting for the day when it flowers and bears fruit..Eating fresh tomato’s and cucumbers from your garden is such a reward for all the love and care you put into it…Gardening is a passion one I am happy to say I have along with a green thumb and yes I am Irish….thanks, Rowena

    I look forward to spring most by getting my seeds started in this cold climate and planning the gardens; flowers and veggies. Browsing seed catalogs and all gardening sites in the winter get me reved for spring! Bring it on!

    Spring time means daffodils and tulips. It reminds me of my grandmother who was my inspiration to the world of gardening. Everything in nature was an opportunity to teach us something. She was a kindergarden teacher, a girlscout leader, but most importantly my grandmother.

    I am SO looking foward to the ‘greening’ after a long, cold, very snowy winter. I can’t wait to see the sprouting and my flower beds coming back to life. After many months of everything black and white and brown……..it will be pure joy!

    i’ve always wanted a greenhouse, so starting w/ a mini-one would be a fabulous start..

  11. March 17, 2011 at 12:22 pm #

    I have my own greenhouse and I love watching the little plants emerge from the soil. Then I walk around the yard and look for what’s popping up in the gardens. I just noticed the crocus are starting to peek out. Spring is my favorite time of the year.

    My favorite thing about Spring is immense variety of the flowers just in my own yard: citrus blossoms, peach blossoms, wisteria blooms, clover, squash flowers, tomato flowers, daffodils, dutch iris, gladiolas, roses, lillies… and our hive of bees that enjoy them too!

    I love the smell of the earth warming after a long winter of snow and freezing temperatures. I enjoy seeing my pussy willow budding, knowing that next will come the delicate smell of my lilacs.

    I love spring arriving because that means I can spend my days from sunup to sundown outside playing in the dirt pampering my beautiful garden that is full of roses, azelias, iris, canna lillies, day lillies, impatience. hosta, and many other beautiful plants. In the evening, we can enjoy the benefits of all my labor by smelling and seeing the beauty while eating our grilled steaks and drinking our southern sweet tea! Yes mam!

    My favorite thing about Spring is the rebirth of everything green & beautiful! New life in the garden, new life in the trees, new life in the bird’s nests. Everything is coming alive and giving us the hope of rebirth and new beginnings!

    Spring brings St. Patrick’s Day, my favorite holiday. Yes, I am Irish! I love starting my seeds in the sunroom and checking their growth every day and fussing over them. I love the warmth of the spring sun and I love NO SNOW!!

    I am looking forward to more sunshine, more time outside with my daughter, and enjoying the beaches/rivers/lakes here in Florida. We are transplanting our seedlings to their permanent homes outside, probably next week, and I can’t wait to watch them grow and harvest them.

    No more snow! We are still buried. Green shoots, birds returning and others leaving, and the plants that came inside for the winter can go back out.

    I’m a skier so I do miss the snow… but… I’m in awe of the beauty of the flower plus I can’t wait to eat fresh veggies and fruit from the garden. I can almost hear the asparagus and rhubarb starting to wake up!

    I can’t wait to start planting in my raised beds! Today I took a half day off work since it is 60 degrees and sunny! I am going to plant my sugar snap peas since it is St. Patrick’s day so I have good luck with my gardening adventures :)

    Am in ag country, Northern Santa Barbara County, so blessed year round, but when the spring’s brief rains drape over the coastal hills, well, the gold winter hills turn to vivid greens, dotted with hprses, cattle and many wildflowers, the valley oaks releaf in new darker green, setting the stage for fields of California Poppies, gazanias, rose moss, hordes of blossoming bougainvillea of many colors, making a drive on Highway 101, Santa Maria to Ventura, just breathtaking! Ah, spring!

    I love that EVERY spring there is a God-given drive in me to work in the garden. It comes so naturally and it is very strong – it’s not there in winter but starts every March. I love how (in California) the existing flowering plants just start blooming all on their own. And I love being drawn to be creative in adding new elements to the living canvas.

    What do I love about spring? I can start working in my dirt! We have a new home and I have been working to get gardens and landscaping in the almost 1 acre of land that is our “yard.” I wait all winter just so I can start clearing out the weeds and try to implement my “plan.” This year we have saved enough to pay someone to put our front lawn in – but I have LOTS of little garden plots I am trying to get going. SO – hurry up Spring I need to get my hands in the dirt. :)
