  1. Having the lush green of spring appear since it has been a brown/grey/snow coated hibernation season.

  2. Growing plants in my bucket garden. I ordered a new planter today shaped like an octopus. Can’t wait.

  3. Being able to get out of the house more for walks. Getting kind of housebound with the quarantine.

  4. I’m looking forward to sunny and warm weather. Doing walks and reading outside in the garden.

  5. I’m looking forward to warmer weather, opening my windows, hearing the birds, and seeing flowers bloom. And planning my garden.

  6. I’m looking forward to no more snow and ice! And to be able to open up the windows and let the fresh air in.

  7. Being able to go outside and not step in a foot of mud because we are getting rain when the next county over gets snow. I don’t mind cold temps, but the constant mud is getting to me and my dog.

  8. Looking forward to everything waking up and turning green again. Looking forward to the robins returning. I love the colored and scents of spring.

  9. Tbh, I’m just tired of the snow and the cold. My eyes are super sensitive to brightness and the snow here just makes being outside extra uncomfortable. 😕 Spring time is nice and green and bright, but not searing like the whiteness of winter is. 🪴

  10. Pennsylvania, I’m looking forward to no snow/ice for a while. Flowers and Spring temps Bring It On!

  11. I am most looking forward to the new life presented each spring – plants emerging and baby animals.

  12. I’m looking forward to warmer weather and hopefully the pandemic will be on its way to being over!

  13. I’m in LA County. Spring is just a little warmer than Winter. I’m looking forward to different birds coming by, and flowers blooming. We get a marine layer most of March and April, then really hot in May, and more marine layer called June Gloom in June. I love being this close to the ocean.

  14. Oh my gosh, I always look forward to the new growth of budding plants and trees. I think ever since I moved into a house in the Fall, I was so curious to see what would bloom in the Spring.

  15. Spring is my favorite because of all the flowers. Unfortunately I know summer is next and that is my least favorite season in the South.

  16. I’m most looking forward to warmer weather but I’m not looking forward to the thaw. We have gotten plenty of snow this year and I’m anxious about flooding. It’s been so bitterly cold the past couple weeks so I just want some sunshine!

  17. I am looking forward to the flowers, animals, trees in bloom, sunsets. Everything comes back to life and it is refreshing!

  18. I live in Florida so the weather is usually sunny although we have had some cold spells lately.

  19. I’m looking forward to going for long walks in the park with my husband, enjoying the warmth of the sunshine, the scent of the flowers, & the sound of the birds singing!!!

  20. Spring is rather damp and muddy in the Pacific Northwest, but the daffodils are splashes of color against the brown bark of the trees and ground. The days are longer so I tend to putz around more before cuddling up with a good book.

  21. Spring-the few perfect weather days between kind of cold and blistering hot. I live in Phoenix AZ.

  22. I am looking forward to warmer weather, longer days and lounging poolside with a good book!!

    Love this fast five!

    I’ve never heard of Anxious People . I will have to check it out!

    • I’m looking forward to getting my yard ready for summer. Raking and planting flowers. I also enjoy walks as the sun sets and warmer temperatures in central Wisconsin!

  24. Living in Michigan, I’m looking forward to some warmer weather. I also hope by spring I will be able to see my two granddaughters..ages 7&9 (and their parents)..and give them hugs and kisses. I miss playing with them and have only seen them from afar.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  25. Right now the only thing that I’m looking forward to in the spring is the warmer temperatures

  30. I am looking forward to warmers days, especially after this crazy Texas snow storm that we are currently living in. Who knew so many disasters could start just from some falling snow.

  31. I suppose I’m looking forward to new beginnings as I’ve got a few things I’m working on that I hope to take flight by then. 🙂

  32. I’m looking forward to warmer weather, flowers, and bidding trees. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  33. I’m looking forward to everything greening up in Spring and the end of Lake Effect Snow. With Lake Erie nearly frozen, the snow has a habit of creating a lot of havoc and white-out conditions. I want to go on walks on the boardwalk at the Shaker Nature Center and see the deer, chipmunks, squirrels, ducks, geese and a weasel that I saw once.

  34. what am i most looking forward to about spring- better weather and hopefully a better job very soon.

  35. Thank you so much for the opportunity and your generosity I am looking forward to more SUNSHINE and flowers blooming going back on Daylight Savings Time!!

  36. Today since it’s my birthday a short walk around the yard showed some iris leaves poking through the snow. My favorite flower
    but not one favored by many .
    Seeing these even with the snow and bitter cold make me love and yearn for the start of spring. Blue birds are fighting over bird houses. Even the type of birds around us are changing All these signs make me want spring here …the scent of mowed grass , morel mushrooms and birds learning how to fly.

  37. Getting the kids out of the house for long periods of time! They are so cooped up! We were at -50 with windchill recently and it’s just been a cold winter like usual. We need to get back to our daily bike rides and rollerblading! Plus I would love to see my flowers, it feels like it’s been way to long.

    • Minus any temp is just wrong! Mother Nature gets too serious during the winter lately. -50! I can’t even imagine.

  50. My husband slipped on the ice on Sunday and broke his leg. I know he as well as I am looking forward to the spring and an end to this frigid winter!!

  54. I am actually looking forward to some spring cleaning. Yes, I know I could clean now, but I will be stirring up a lot of dust and want to be able to open the windows. So, I guess what I am really looking forward to is opening the windows!

  55. I love getting your newsletters. Always a chance for me to add too my TBR pile. Hope you and your family are staying well and healthy.

  57. Love all the flowers of spring and am looking forward to seeing if my lilac bush will flower this year.

  58. Spring is the season of birth, new life. Specifically, the birth of twin granddaughters! They are actually due any day, but I hope by spring I will be able to cuddle them mask -free! That will definitely be a new life for me!

  59. What I’m looking to the most about spring is spring break(since I’m a teacher) and being able to plant flowers at my new house!

  73. For Spring… I’m looking forward to the 3 feet of snow outside my door to melt away. But I am also looking forward to being able to ride my bike, take a walk, or just generally be outside for more than the walk to the garage.

  74. I love the newness of plants and animals shaking off winter: Daffodils blooming, birds singing, and bright blue skies. I also love reading new authors in spring. I usually find one that is not on the talk show trail. My best find was Susan Meissner 3 years ago and Diane Chamberlain in 2019. So this spring I will add Farrah Rochon.

    • Correction to my previous reply: Diane Chamberlain is the correct name -loved loved My Dream Daughter!!!

  76. I am looking forward to spring to go outside comfortably. It has been so cold here lately that I haven’t been outside in the last 12 days. We are slowly heading for a warmup (getting in the 20’s and maybe 30’s) so things are going to get better.

  77. Back to my absolute favorite place to read: the glider on my back porch! It’s so relaxing, with the sun on my back, the dogs playing in the grass, the birds singing while sitting on the fence! What better place to read my current favorite book!

  90. Spring! Fresh Air, gardening and sunshine all in one glorious day!
    Opening the windows and airing out the house. Have been “spring cleaning” for the past year now-LOL

  91. Hi! I guess what I’m most looking forward to about Spring is being able to sit out on our deck after a long day at work and relaxing with a good book to read while I breathe in the beautiful fresh air.

  92. I love seeing all the pretty flowers that start to bloom as the spring comes. And I especially love that the snow goes away.

  93. I am looking forward to the spring flowers, especially tulips which are my favorite. Thanks for the chance!

  94. I just love spring. I’m a spring baby, and mild weather is my favorite. Of course, there are a gazillion spring books on my tbr list also. 🙂

  95. I just love soaking tin the sun. I always feel cold so I love to sit outside and heat up. My dogs also love the sun, they find the sunniest spot and lay there.

  96. I am so looking forward to warmer temps so I can go walking again. With or without my pup. I’m also looking forward to all the colors since right now it’s white and gray.

  97. I’m looking forward to getting my COVID vaccinations so I can get out into the world again!!

  98. I am really looking forward to the weather warming up. Especially today, when the world outside my window is snowy and icy. I am ready for new leaves on the trees, flower buds, and walks in the park.

  99. The first thing that I love about Spring is watching my cats reveling in the sunshine, rolling on their backs and stretching out in the warmth. I know that they are supremely content at that moment, and that makes me content as well. I also look for the first spring flowers, especially the crocus peeping out from unexpected places. When I see the crocus, then I know that Spring is here. Since I am a cook and a foodie, I also anticipate the early fruits and vegetables, which are so fresh and delicious. Almost everything gets a “fresh coat of paint”, including personal spirits!

  100. We were married on the first day of Spring in 1971. I’m looking forward to our 50th an anniversary 3>

  101. In the arrival of Spring I am looking forward to reading The Dating Playbook and The Boyfriend Playbook, OUTSIDE where my friends and I will sitting outside , reading and eating our tea time goodies. My friends and I LOVE spring because it is not the hot miserable heat we have in New Mexico during the summer. Reading outside under the tree during the wonderfully warm (not hot) days of spring. We love having our tea outside during spring, I look forward to Tea Time spring every year!

  102. Well, after the record setting snow so far this month, I’m looking forward to no more of the white stuff.

  103. What I most look forward to this spring is reduced reported cases of COVID infections. I look forward to being out more, working in the garden. I would love to take a trip to the coast but will wait until it’s safe to do so.

  104. I’m looking forward to warmer temperatures and walking on our local beach again. (It’s just too cold to get out there walking now!)
