Spring is Here! Winter is gone. But which is better?

Biceps and I have argued for years about what season of year is the best. He’s partial to the Fall-light jackets are necessary, trees are turning yellows/reds/oranges and the beverage of choice is coffee.

I personally love the Spring time.

But, I’ll be honest-the biggest reason that I love the Spring is that it means my birthday is right around the corner.

I will be making my case as to why Spring is the “Superior Season”. I would like for you to judge the facts, and see if you don’t come to the same awesome conclusion.

Besides my birthday (which I may need to remind you that you only have 59 shopping days left),I love the reminder that we once were dead and now we are alive in Him-seen as the naked trees bud, the brown and prickly grass turns green and soft, and the dormant flowers are in bloom.


But, on a less philosophical note, I also know this time of year means the lovely and delicious Cadbury Easter Eggs will be placed strategically at every cash register in America. Yum.

But, I digress.


When the weather starts getting warmer, the neighbors venture outside, shielding their eyes from something we haven’t seen in months-the sun.

One of my favorite neighbors will sit out back with her precious little white dogs and read for hours.


I know that there is always some out there to talk to, share gardening tips with or chat over Bicep’s latest adventure in firefighting.


Doors and windows are left open, giving the breeze full reign. Shorts are dusted off and legs are shaved. The garden will be planted soon-which promises a harvest and a physical measure of hard work.
The neighborhood is alive with strollers, bikes, dog walkers and runners. There is life, shared life, as we smile at each other, catch up on the other and enjoy the sun.

I think I have made my case. In my opinion-Spring wins the “Superior Season Contest”. But Biceps says the jury is still out.

    Sorry Rebekah – I have to go on the side of Biceps. I’m a lover of fall. Spring is my second favorite. I love them both for their photographic qualities, but fall steals my heart every time.

    I’m with you! Spring and summer are my favorite seasons. I am slightly lizard like in the fact that I love heat and do not retain it to well for long. Bring on the sun! And the sunscreen please!

    Easy choice for me since I just came inside after planting new strawberry plants & finding hostas, lilies, bellflowers, & asters (just to name a few) all showing up for a brand-new season. I love Spring!!

    You do argue persuasively for spring, very good reasons, each and every one of them. However, I think because of where I grew up, I love fall!!! Spring was wet and muddy, by the time all the snow had melted and the ground was completely dry, it was pretty much hot, muggy and summer! I absolutely adore fall – the sights, sounds, smells, the decorations, the holidays, everything about it just wakes me up. And there is the anticipation of it. It’s kind of like Black Friday – it may be dark now, but Sunday’s coming! Everything leads up to Christ’s birth and the celebration of that with my family. And I actually lie winter too, I used to say fall was my favorite season cuz after that winter came. 😉 I can’t tolerate the cold as much as I used to, but I still think fall is the best. Sorry….. ;(
