The First Day Of Spring

In climates where there are four seasons, today is the first official day of spring. If you live in Los Angeles, that means sunny and warm. If you live in Antarctica it means snowy and cold.

But in 'moderate' parts of the world, today is a day of hope and new beginnings. Where this post is written, spring is more of a theory today but with the melting snow and imminent warmer weather that hope remains.

Here are some others' thoughts on the season:

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.
W. Earl Hall

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
Robin Williams

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
Doug Larson

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.
Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
Margaret Atwood

Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment.
Ellis Peters

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
Henry Van Dyke

You can't see Canada across lake Erie, but you know it's there. It's the same with spring. You have to have faith, especially in Cleveland.
Paul Fleischman
