My favorite aspect of spring? I love when it's sunny and not too hot, and I don't mind running errands when the weather's like that. And I love wearing flipflops and skirts, which ties into the weather thing, since you can't wear spring/summer clothes in winter. :P

If I'm subscribed via Reader, does that count as anything?

My favourite aspect of spring would have to be the fact that it's warm but not too hot and also that all the flowers and everything begin to grow. Also, the snow is gone...YAY!

My favorite thing about spring is being able to lounge on a raft in the pool with a good book. I also love that the bird's build nests all around my yard.

My favorite aspect of spring is definitely the sun. It's always raining/snowing here so it's nice to have a change. And I like how everyone has a change in outfit; they all start to wear color, it's pretty!

I love spring. It's my birthday season for one, but really I do love the nice weather. I'm big on reading outside with my mom, and I hate really cold or really hot weather, so spring and fall are usually the best times.

Amazing contest. :)

My favorite aspect of Spring is the weather getting warmer. And I like to watch the trees and flowers bloom even though it totally messes with my allergies.

I'm more of a Fall girl myself, but I love Spring too because I can sit outside with my dog in the front yard and read for hours on end. Plus, I usually talk long walks in the evening with my dog and my sister, which is always very relaxing.

I love spring because I finally get to play soccer outdoors again. I love my indoor team but I prefer real grass. And I also get to mow my lawn again which is my favorite thing to do. And school is almost over! (37 days left from me...I counted.) AND I can read outside while working on preventing the farmers tan that I always get from soccer camp. And no more coldness...mostly.

One of my favorite things about spring is being able to horse ride with out freezing your fingers and nose again, and having to worry about your horse slipping on ice! I also love spring because of the nicer weather than summer!

I want to read these books sooo badly! Especially "Amaranth Enchantment" and "Need!" Thanks for the contest!

My favroite part of spring is when it's warm out, but it's raining at the same time. It happens a few times here in Portland, and there's just something about it. To be able to feel the warmth from the sun on your skin as water droplets fall on you. It's indescribable.

Oh there are so many of these thatI want to read! What do I like about spring? Hmm, good question. Well, there are quite a few things that I DON'T like such as allergies and all the bugs (and snakes!) that come out of hiding and the wishy-washy weather where it is hot and sunny one second and cold and rainy the next.

However, spring does have some nice things such as everything is green, blooming, and very pretty. I can wear short sleeves again! Oh and it's a time of new things (we're in the middle of buying our first house) and as much as I loathe doing it I love the end result of spring cleaning!

My favorite aspect in spring is the smell. It smells fresh and clean. And i love being able to go outside for a lazy day afternoon and just sit in the sun and read. It makes me so happy. Plus i live in a rural area and spring is when we start planting our garden and i get to see everything just start to green up. Its really beautiful.

cata ananias said...

I looove spring! It's my favorite season: it's when rain and dull gray days disappear and, yay! spring comes, coloful, beautiful, fresh and warm spring! You put your boots and gloves and coats back into the closet, and take out the dresses and skirts and shorts. It's the time of the year when flowers start to bloom, when butterflies are suddenly flying everywhere, and when you look up to the sky, see it cloudless and sunny, and think that, yeah, the world is a good, happy place.
That's what spring makes me think of :)
Thanks a lot, what an amazing giveaway.

Max Brown said...

My favorite thing about spring is how the days get longer. I like it when it's lighter later. It feels sort of like it's more okay for me to stay up late (I do that anyway, but it feels more like I have meteorological approval) and it reminds me that summer's coming. But it's not too hot, like summer is. It's... sweet. Which is nice.

Favorite aspect of spring...well for a sixteen year old it has to be knowing that school is soon to be over and that summer is coming. But it's also the fact that stepping outside and knowing that the day is just a little bit better because either the rain is slighty hitting on the blossoming flowers or the sun's rays are shining over them. The sun warms many people inside but sometime's you need the rain to keep you in reality and that's exactly what spring does. It keeps you in reality. Because winter freezes you, summer makes you forget, and fall confuses you.

Although my allergies don't love it, I absolutely love all of the colors. After the absence of color in the winter, spring is like opening up a box of crayons. I love it!!
