what does spring in new england mean to you?

The best way to describe Spring in New England is an awakening. It feels like everyone is coming out of hibernation after a quiet and cold winter. First the daffodils bloom then we have the cherry trees and tulips. Sometimes we experience all four seasons at once with a rainy morning, warm afternoon, and an overnight frost but that’s what makes it so special. You never know what to expect only that summer is waiting for you on the other side.

Spring in New England is truly one of a kind.

This year has been extra special since there is also a sense of hope in the air. The birds seem louder and the sky appears brighter. Last spring feels like it was a lifetime ago and you can tell everyone is itching to get outside. One of my favorite indicators of spring, in addition to the flowers, is the opening of ice cream stores. New England has some of the best homemade ice cream and it’s the perfect pick me up after a rainy day. Spring in New England is truly one of a kind.
