13 Signs of spring

1. The litterbox in the garage is less dirty

2. Cat Arthur started to check the neighbor gardens to see if somebody is working. He loves to help

3. I suddenly feel as if I have nothing to wear

4. I looked for shoes and trousers, eventually new jeans

5. The cashier girl who never talks and treats you as non existing, informs me suddenly that finally spring is coming and I can hear that she has a voice !

6. Dogs escape their homes and run free following their spring feelings

7. People are running around and ask where their dogs are

8. A magpie puts every day a little branch in my neighbor's stuck. I have to inform her.

9. Motor saws are singing all around

10. Women wash their curtains

11. Men wash their cars or let it wash

12. Garden shops are crowded as if everything was free

13. The air has a special smell

Everything comes to life when Spring has Sprung. I'm just grateful to be able to open up my windows. Happy T13!

Yum, I love the smell of spring. Doesn't surprise me a bit that Arthur is a gardener.

Wow... Like Pamela, I didn't know to wash curtains either! I'm so hoping for spring, but tentative here in Colorado!

Melli said...

Yes indeed! It's IN the air! Unfortunately I have only to open the windows to enjoy it -- I am beginning to feel like a HERMIT with this cold! Mom has it too -- she did not get out of bed until 1:15 this afternoon! (lucky me!)

Hi Gattina! There is an award waiting for you on my blog. This "Daily Blogger Award" is to be given to blogs that have at least 5 posts per week (one per day, give or take.)

All the best to you and kind regards from Eppie! :-)

Brenda ND said...

You're right, especially about that certain smell in the air. Happy Spring!

Alice Audrey said...

Yep, life picks up speed in the Spring.

All Rileyed Up said...

I'm one of the people asking where her dog is.

Dr.John said...

The only sign of Spring I care about is the snow going away.

Eaton Bennett said...

Gattina, that certainly sounds like spring...and it's beautiful, you're right there is a special smell in the air that only comes with spring.
In Australia we are into Fall/Autumn,
soon winter. :)

I'm green of envy. Just saying. I only got 1 spring sign: bird twitter.
