With the sun blazing, flowers blooming, and adventures nearing, we can say goodbye to the frosty winter and say hello to the balmy spring. Spring is the time of season to open your windows to view the plants sprouting, or plan some dandy break plans. Spring is not only wondrous because of the weather before the scorching summer, but for all the delightful places and activities that will come. As spring arrives and the spring fever rises, here are some great things about springtime.
From berry picking to water gardens, springtime is the season of new life. At Gorman’s Farm in Laurel, Maryland, people can pick fresh produce to later enjoy with fresh made salad, or gather in a group to enjoy nature’s products. Another suggestion is to enjoy a stroll through Brighton Dam Azalea Garden, where patrons can view fresh azaleas or hybrids to a beautiful waterfront in Brookeville, Maryland.
Spring has many wonderful adventures people can take , such as listening to the birds sing and chirp or going to the park with your close-knit friends or family. Other ways are taking in the beauty surrounding the community by spending some time at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, Maryland. According to Sophomore Kylie Haynie,“The atmosphere is uplifting and warm. With opportunities to go kayaking, have picnics, and fly kites”. Another activity to do in the spring stated by Mr. Hereth is “Trail running at Harper’s Ferry”. Spring is not only enjoyable because of all the activities you can do, but for the all nature blooming around you. With spring on the way, people can prepare to make plans for the warmer days and with friends.
Spring may be weeks away, but we can still plan today. Spring is the season to rejoice and be glad because everything is new. The flowers, the air, and even yourself can change. Start by reflecting on the things you can do to help other people, and make yourself a better you. As spring arrives from the crisp winter, be confident in yourself, so that your hardships will fade away. Remember when bad trials come your way, do not be bitter and icy, but instead spring forward.
