Five Signs Spring Has Definitely Sprung

1. Birdsongs awaken you at the crack of dawn because you’re sleeping with the windows open. One of my favorite wake-up songs is the Towhee’s. Its song sounds like “Drink your tea.”

2. Testing at School. Whether it’s CRTs, IOWAs or LEAPs, the kids are being tested—a lot.

3. People all around you are wearing flip-flips and sandals. Yup, time to schedule or do your own pedicure.

4. When two or more teenage girls gather, talk turns to prom—dresses, dates, limos. Take a gander at some of last year’s “Stuck at Prom” contest. All these outfits are made with duck tape, and the teens who make them wear them to prom. How cool! www.

5. You gird your loins as you pass by the bathing suits being displayed in department stores and decide you might want to get back into that exercise routine that fizzled out with the cold weather.

What other signs do you see around you this spring that let you know the season has definitely sprung?

A sign of spring for me is when my neighbor's little girl brings me spring pansies clutched in her tiny hands.

Oh, yes! The pansies in the nursery! And petunias. First, my blackberry bushes bloom, followed by my lavender.

Christine and Judy,
I've got white azaleas and roses blooming now. I love my roses!

Here in Virginia, the Cherry Blossoms are a clue--and the jonquils and tulips, but I really know it is Spring when the dogwoods and azaleas are out. Then it's Virginia at its most beautiful!
