I love spring

Of all the seasons of the year, it is spring that I love most.  There is a lot of good things about spring.  Just to mention some of them.  (Note)  Pictures were taken from our neighborhood in San Fernando de Henares, Madrid.

1)  flowers - the beauty of the cherry blossoms as they announce the coming of spring

the delightful scent of trees like the Mimosa tree as they decorate the environment
and the colorful varieties of flowers that grow all around us.

2)  the longer days and warm weather-  As winter disappears, we feel the warmth of the sun on our face as we get to enjoy it more time during the day.

3)  lighter clothes -  It’s great when you can put away your winter clothes and go out without having to pile on the layers.

4) enjoy outdoors - It’s warmer, it’s sunnier, and you can enjoy sitting outdoors. Going for walks is more fun, and I also like being able to have a coffee at a table outside.

As Pablo Neruda says:  "You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming".
