I too suffer from spring fever but I as yet have no reason to become afflicted. The weather has not changed significantly and we still have snow on the ground.

Yesterday, I couldn't wait to get home. The temp was 71*F, it was sunny, and traffic was light - yay! I got home, put on capri pants and a short-sleeved shirt, and sat on the porch with a glass of wine and a magazine with the dog at my feet. After DH mowed the back yard, we went for a walk in the sunshine along the river. It was glorious

Today we're supposed to have more of the same, but with a few more clouds. I feel like a new person with the extra daylight after work.

I will feel springy fever when our clocks change on March 30th. Right now it's still grey and raining here in Bristol....no spring fever feeling here yet!

Although, all the daffies are blooming which does make me feel a bit springy!

I am so ready to start gardening--it was warm enough this week, but the garden is still too wet from all the snow. And it is supposed to rain cats and dogs and little fishes all weekend, so no gardening for a while.

By this time last year, my peas and lettuce were up.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I cleared out the beds in my garden last weekend and added fresh mulch and woodchips. I can see some of the things I planted in the fall sprouting. I am excited about this as I had a mudpatch when I bought the house.
I cant wait until the weather warms up a bit and I can start my veggies and herbs.... spring comes slow here though and lately its been sort of dreary I am ready for some nice sunny weather.

We are doing a tree planting of something like 80 trees in my neighborhood this sunday so that should help with bringing the springy feeling. I am getting one of the trees in front of my house very exciting!

I think I'd have spring fever if I wasn't still suffering from cabin fever. We've had snow warnings the last three days. Fortunately so far the weather report was wrong. It doesn't prevent the heavy clouds and cold air though.

I've got spring fever big time! The frogs are hollerin' back by the pond, the crocus are blooming and the daffodils are up, and the blue birds are back.

We get by with a little help from our friends
