Which of these is a sure sign of Spring where you live?

spiced spiced 02/20/2013

My wife's very excited, because yesterday, she was shopping at our local Asian grocery store and learned that this season's first fresh mangoes will soon be available. Doesn't excite me much, but still, it's one of the first signs that Spring will soon be here.

How about where you live? What tells you Spring is just around the corner?

It takes longer for 'Spring' to hit us though.

Where im living the weather starts to change, the leaves start to change colors. You can pretty much tell.

Lol! These made me laugh! Here, once the weather hits 45 or 50, it's spring. I'll admit, I'm that local idiot who drives with the windows down when it's 40 degrees.

All the girls at the mall and college who think it's acceptable to wear shorts in 40-50 degree weather.

Actually being able to see the lawn, regardless of color (though that ain't happening anytime soon since it keeps snowing).

Daffodils. Once they start popping up, I feel confident spring is here. Not that we've never had snow after that, but . . . it never lasts that late in the year! I'm so ready. We moved this fall and our driveway is a 45 degree incline. I can't park my van in the garage because I can't get up the icy/snowy driveway. I'm tired of lugging groceries (and kids!) down that hill!

These are hilarious. xD
I guess I just moved to Portland so I dunno. I'd guess the ability to get out of bed in the morning without shaking all the way to the closet is coming soon, that'll be nice.

When the weather starts fluctuating an extreme amount, that usually means it's spring.

Spring tends to come with this really nice set of days where everything is 50-60 degrees, it's super sunny, everyone leaves their front doors open for the first time that year and gardening starts.

...can't go out of the lawn still, though. it's still wet.

Here, the snow finally melts off, the first few itty bitty leaf buds start opening up on our lilac bush. and the grass starts looking a bit less like dead hay.

But a few of these options are absolutely hilarious.

It's spring when all the college girls stop wearing skinny jeans with uggs and start wearing shorts skirts with uggs. Sounds cynical but I saw at least a dozen short skirt-ugg combos on the bus home today.

It was Springlike yesterday for the first time; we went for a hike and it was awesome.

u_u Out of these...the first run to the pharmacy or dollar store for allergy meds. For maybe a couple weeks in early spring and autumn, I get so stuffed up and sneezy that I actually bother buying tissues for a change.

But otherwise, I generally start my 3am walks and try to plant some flowers. =3
The feel of that cool night time breeze against my skin and aroma of the different types gorgeous flowering trees in the neighborhood when it just starts getting tolerably warm is amazing.
