Spring is in the Air

The very thought of spring makes me smile—for a couple reasons. You see, Spring is by far my most favorite season next to fall. It’s not for a “Mary Poppins birds singing flowers blooming type of reason. Not at all. In fact, Spring is my favorite because there are absolutely no bugs present. That’s right, you read it right--No bugs.

To understand the significance of that one statement is to know where I live. You see I live in Eastern Canada; the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. No matter where you live, if you are surrounded by bogs, trees or water, you will have bugs. They are annoying little pests. So my top reason is pretty basic.

My next reason is more of a memory and a love to do type of thing. In this region because of the high amounts of snow that we receive in the winter time that come spring, it tends to become wet and messy. For the avid walker or runner it poses a problem but for the people that like to play in the snow and water it’s ideal.

It is nothing more thrilling than riding a four wheeler down what once was a winter sliding hill and straight into and through a large icy water puddle.  Yes, you get very wet and it becomes rather cold but the fun is priceless and something only spring can offer.

So as the winter wonderland melts away and welcomes spring, it is not only Mother Nature that enjoys the transformation but the people of the big land of Labrador as well.

There is a prize for stopping by my blog today, if you leave a comment and join my blog then I will randomly select one commenter to receive a free copy of Evernight Vol II.

There is a grand prize at the end of this tour, a large ebook package for one lucky person who leaves a comment.
