Spring is officially here!

I would be really excited about this, but I have a confession to make... I loathe spring. I really do. Where others see hope, renewal, and rebirth, I see dirty puddles and allergies and pastel everything (yuck!). I know I am in the minority here, but spring is my least favorite season.

Spring's only redeeming quality, in my opinion, is the sudden abundance of flowers. I wasn't sure what to expect in this city that is devoid of any real seasonal transitions, but I am thrilled to report that flowers are blossoming everywhere right now! I mean, the leaves don't change color in the fall, but cherry blossoms and tulips bloom in April? I don't understand it, but I'll take it.

Who knew this city could be even prettier. Plus, thanks to the awesome flower vendor at our local farmers' market, I currently have three vases of white tulips in the apartment. It's like Holland up in here.

Ok, so maybe spring isn't all that bad.


  1. I LOVE all the flowers that accompany Spring...but NONE of the allergies. My eyes are dying right now. ugh. So you are not alone!


  2. In my country where it is blazing hot in summer and comfortably cool in winter, spring heralds the arrival of the hot summer. I'm not a huge fan of spring either!

    Those flowers look pretty though. If you have a moment come say hello on my blog!:]

    Shubhi's Revels!
