At least for us who live in the Northern Hemisphere. For most of us it is a feeling of joy to see the snow melting and the birds coming back from Southern parts of the world. It is incredible that they find their way back to their home. We, who live near the Arctic Circle still have to wait for the green leaves and grass. One poet and song writer described her feeling: In the park in spring, with eyes sensitive for green. I saw a video with the real spring feeling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GELKWLdCTv8&feature=share For us who still have to wait, it was a wonderful experience to see this. How do you feel when spring comes??

It just feel great, no words can possibly describe it accurately. I can see that the tree in my garden begin to grow leaves again, all the empty branches on the trunk turn back to green color again, the birds begin to come back and perform their singing chorus in tandem at the early morning hours until noon, the squirrels are back running around and climbing the tree at the back yard, my lawn is back into a shinny greenery look again, temperature is getting warmer and more accommodating to human body, fresh air fill up the space once again with the arrival of Spring wind, all things begin to come to life again. It is a wonderful feeling no one could possibly disagree and ignore,it sure feel like the music of life is back to you again.

What a beautiful description of the springtime.. You must live a lot further to the south from my place, if you can see the leaves coming already. "The music of life" is a great way to describe the feeling..

Here in Canada, we cannot be sure that winter is over until about the 20th of May. That's when most people plant their gardens, as before that anything can happen. In my mind, winter is over as soon as we hit March. Even though we can still have snow and we will, nevertheless, I know that it will only get better. I was just shoveling some snow that fell during the night but I did not put my coat or hat on. I was only out about ten minutes. The fresh air felt good. Spring is in the air! (At least in my mind.)

Yes, it feels so good every year.. Our plant season starts about June 10th, not so late as one could expect thinking of the Arctic Circle being almost next door.. I would love to see the mighty nature in Canada. The big rivers and lakes and mountains must be an amazing sight, especially in Springtime..

The flowers interest me most. They let us know that good weather is ahead.

The flowers are wonderful. Really show the miracles of the creation, and they come in millions, every spring and summer. One can wonder how they survive all cold winter..

I live in a place where we do not have a season separate as spring as the whole year seems to be hot and warm. But still, I can see few trees spurting with new leaves and some tress still shedding their old leaves.

Interesting - I understand India has a very different climate compared to us in the North. Still there seems to be some differences during the year, I hope you like your climate..

I can't wait to be ready to be able to open up the windows again to let some fresh air. And we have to some serious spring cleaning around here.

Oh yes, fresh air is great, like a medicine, but it is free.. One can sleep better if the window is a bit open. I guess we all need to do some spring cleaning - better meet the summer without too much clutter around..

I think everyone enjoys spring and as much as I enjoy the winter, I enjoy spring, too. We've got a ways to go, though... it just stopped snowing. I think the sun is coming out, but who knows?

Yes, winter can be great as long as the weather is somehow good. Not -30C - more like -5C - But some like to make it cozy indoors when it's really cold..

I can't wait to get to spring time season here. I need to get out of this coat and boots. I want to see some flowers and colorful leaves on the trees.

After the cold winters we all welcome for the spring season and we all like to see the melting ice with the miming sound of the birds that season is awesome:)

Agree completely. If we had warm weather all year, maybe we wouldn't enjoy the spring so much.. Every year it feels so wonderful..
