Spring seems to finally be arriving in my corner of the world, and this makes me so happy. The weather is to be warming up and is probably going to keep warming up instead of suddenly getting colder and dumping snow on us. The flowers are blooming and the trees are beginning to get green. (I'm completely disregarding allergies here because I'm happy anyway and that's what Claritin is for.) Not just me, right?
Spring isn't actually my favorite time of year. I think I've said that autumn is my favorite, but there's something about spring. A feeling of everything starting new, a breath of fresh air after a cold winter shut up inside.
I've been out walking most mornings since it started to warm up. I've missed my walks during the cold weather. Walking is great exercise and it also gives me lots of thinking time. I've solved a lot of plot problems and been struck with a lot of story and character inspiration while walking, so I'm really happy to be able to get out and do it again. (I suppose some people would be outside walking in the winter regards of cold, but that is not me.) I can write scenes in my head or just clear my mind and let my subconscious work. Enough walking and my writing usually flows a lot better, which is always a good thing.
(I'm pretty excited about spring clothes and shoes too, but that's a whole other thing.)
These turtles seem to be enjoying the sunshine and spring weather too!
Has the weather turned warmer where you are? What do you love about spring?
