6 Reasons To Love Spring

Every season comes with its own charms, but spring is certainly one of the most beautiful seasons. Summer is known for its warmth and winter is known for its cold beauty, but spring is known for being the season of life.

As the weather warms up, plants bloom and baby animals are born. Spring is filled with promise and wonder, so it is hard to decide what I like the most about the season – but there are lots of things to choose from.

Here are 6 reasons to love spring.

1. Longer Days

After months of darkness, the days finally are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter. It is wonderful to be able to travel to work and back in the light instead of the darkness, and the extra daylight definitely improves my mood. It is also much easier to get out of bed in the morning when it actually looks like the morning, instead of the middle of the night!

2. Flowering Trees (And Bees)

Nothing puts a smile on my face like a beautiful tree covered in delicate pink blossoms. It is like watching the world wake up from a 6 month nap. I also love watching the little bees buzz around as they gather nectar!

3. Outdoor Eating And Drinking

It’s always fun to go out for food and drinks with friends and family, but I always seem to have a much better time if we are sat outside in the sun. It seems like the sun puts everyone in a happier, more relaxed mood. I also think that orange juice tastes better when the sun is shining, but that might just be me.

4. Outside Exercise

I spend a considerable amount of time during winter in the gym. It’s just too cold and dark to exercise outside! However I actually prefer exercising outside. I think running through the park is much more stimulating that running on a running machine, and classes are much better when they are in the sunshine instead of a studio.

5. The Festivals

Spring is the season of festivals. I live in Britain, and I’ve already bought tickets to a music festival in Leeds and two local food festivals. I’m also hoping to check out some film festivals this year! Are you planning on going to any festivals?

6. Buttercups

I think that buttercups are one of my favorite flowers. I know that they are small and simple, but I love how bright they are, and I love how the sight of buttercups signals the beginning of spring and all its beauty. Although I do wish my dog would stop eating them.

What do you love about spring? Let me know with a comment!

    New life, need and barbeques… well… Badly burnt meat really, but you get my drift. B-)

    Lots of people suffer with SAD so sprung can feel like a really great pick me up.

    Good luck with Leedsfest. It nearly always rains and the roads are always clogged!
    We avoid Leeds or go by train if we need to that week! (I live just a tap South of there)

    I like this season with the exception of doing spring cleaning haha.

    More days of sunshine is certainly welcome. When I lived in the UK for a few months I could never adjust to how quickly it gets dark. Bees? I try to avoid those buggers in case they sting me. That said it is sad to hear that the bee numbers are dropping.

      Hahah it is so dark over here! Maybe that’s why I love Spring so much – the sun is finally back (even if the weather is still cold haha)

        I am not feeling the spring season at the mo. Yesterday we had a month’s worth of rainfall within a 24 hour spell. The garage was flooded and I got home to find a puddle in the living room because precipitation was starting to seep through the window.
