  2. Cielo says:

    Spring is for me a new start. it is like weaking up after a very long sleep.

  3. jenbranham says:

    Spring means planting flowers and our vegetable garden

  4. sustainabilly says:

    Spring means a new beginning :)

  5. Rossana says:

    Spring is the combination of water (rain), wind (blowing away the winter), earth (regrowth) and fire (not too hot but sunny enough to bring blossoms) for regenerating the year to come. New birth of inspiration and health.

  6. DooBops (@DevaDooBops) says:

    Spring is when possibilities are endless, where flower buds press up against the earth reaching for the sun, where new and fresh is everywhere you turn, and life has a soft glow surrounding every living thing. That’s what spring means to me.

  7. KDale says:

    I live in Portland, Oregon and spring means lots of muddy days at the dog park, working in the garden, and spicing up my wardrobe with completely work-appropriate rain boots!

  8. jenyvive says:

    spring means having coffee on my back porch while watching the turtles in the lake. i love spring!

  10. sari says:

    Life of all things at the beginning.

  11. Warm weather, sunshine. fun floral clothing and rain boots :), flowers, and smiles all around!

  12. queenjahmay says:

    Spring means rebirth and awakening after the cold, stark, desolate winter. Each day gets warmer, the ground gets softer, buds appear and begin opening, flowers push their way up from beneath the soil to eventually open, animals emerge from hibernation, children’s laughter fills the air as they ride their bikes through the neighborhood, geese flock back from the south, and everywhere people feel lighter and happier and they’re filled with the spirit of possibility.

  13. says:

    Will certainly put a “SPRING” into my step:)

  14. Pixshooter says:

    Spring means bringing out a different wardrobe, including rain boots!

  15. Banditte says:

    Spring is the first faint smell of sun on your skin, wearing skirts without a million layers of leggings underneath(just one pair maybe), the feeling that you might see a bunny hop by on your lawn, because the flowers are blooming and best of all, enjoying your very first outdoor ice cream of the year, but getting goosebumps, since it is still below 15 degress celsius!

  16. Megan W says:

    Spring means mud of course! But also getting to see everything come alive, I get to see my lovely honey bees again and just enjoy the newness of the year.

  17. meredithhuff says:

    Spring is the start to my season of dirty feet until late fall when forced to wear shoes so my toes don’t freeze.

  18. supriya2000 says:

    To me Spring is fresh start, a season of romance and a welcome to new style. Whether it is reinventing your interior decor at home, revamping your wardrobe or going through personality change- Spring is all about STYLE and new beginnings:)

  19. peppiss says:

    Spring is fiúll of light hue colors, fresh air and tasty vegetables.

  20. eebragg says:

    Spring means busting out the ditch boots and watching the water begin the rise on all the western rivers, because come summer it will be time to drop the handmade wood dory in the flow and float away the desert days.

  21. embl says:

    Spring is a revival of life; a chance to do it all again, better.

  24. kammi says:

    That is too funny that the boots are named after me, except one “M” and my last name starts with a “K”. Spring means hot and cold in Hawaii. It has been rainy lately so those boots are the must!!

  25. baklava18 says:

    To me it means going camping. Or talking long walks in the park.

  26. zoombabe says:

    For me it is the smell of spring. When it comes we can smell it in the air :)

  27. SarahRae55 says:

    Springs means the smell of rain in the air, wild flowers, and splashing in puddles.

  28. onegoodriesen says:

    Spring may not technically be here yet, but I sure felt a waft of spring rain yesterday in little old Iowa. I went for a walk with my best friend in the rain last night, or should I say thunderstorm. The feeling and smell of the rain brought back the wonderful feeling of what it’s like to be a kid again, outside, enjoying the rain drops on my tongue and feeling so at ease; it didn’t matter that I was soaked to the skin. Rain always feels like such a magical part of life, and reminds me of what spring means to me: Spring is a time to reconnect with and embrace the earth and all its elements. This may include splashing in and out of rain puddles with awesome footwear.

  29. schmidty says:

    Spring means renewal and new beginnngs.

  30. vetushkaya says:

    Spring is rebirth, re-organization, recreation, the sign that shows the reinventing of time and nature, of feelings and sometimes people. We should have spring’s resolution, since we are too busy or lazy to start our resolution from the first day of the year.

  31. debasker says:

    Time to get to work planting and growing things! Yay, fresh lettuce! Not so fond of the allergies though….

  36. gr8tfuldayz (@gr8tfuldayz) says:

    Spring means hitting the trails and watching everything bloom! I can’t wait for the sunshine!

  38. ohohoh08 says:

    spring to me is like another new year’s eve… it’s comprised of a fresh start, and renewal of all things. And, being a college student in Chicago, it’s also a continuation of unusual and surprisingly rainy days!

  39. awsm789 says:

    springs means blossoms will bloom and the sun will shine a bit warmer, with the occasional rain. but most of all, it’s revival and renewal…perfect inspirational boost for the new year resolution(s)! :)

  40. Sunnymay says:

    I used to think Spring was the start of rainy season, but we’ve had a mild winter with only occasional Lake Effect Snow so the plows have had an easy time except for 5 days. I like the colors of these boots and the black ones wouldn’t show much dirt.

  41. roseofthewest says:

    In our home and lives, spring means nurturing our budding produce and herb gardens, longer bike rides and walks with the pups, and savoring the remaining storms that we excitedly keep a lookout for.

  42. shannonmarie (@@Rawdorable) says:

    Spring means to me new life, warmer weather and fresh flowers. April showers bring those May flowers, so I’ll need some rain boots, too. My birthday is in April. These would be the perfect birthday gift :-)

  43. carrottop4u says:

    Spring to me means a season of new beginnings, but to my daughter, a single mom of a three year old who works in a horse barn, it means mud, slush and snow galore. I am hoping to win these boots for her so she can not only be warm but green, also. Good Luck to everyone!

  44. superdumb (@superdumb) says:

  74. dbauer says:

    “From you have I been absent in the spring,
    When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
    Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
    That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,
    Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
    Of different flowers in odor and in hue,
    Could make me any summer’s story tell,
    Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew.
    Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
    Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
    They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
    Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
    Yet seemed it winter still, and, you away,
    As with your shadow I with these did play.”

    From you have I been absent in the spring… (Sonnet 98)
    William Shakespeare

  77. coastalluna says:

    Since moving to Vancouver from years in Northern Ontario, Southern Ontario and Alberta, I never realized how colourful, fragrant and truly refreshing Spring in Canada could be! Here, you actually do get to see a postcard spring – crocuses popping up all over lawns in February, birds return and bushes of ‘yellow bells’ bloom all over like polkadots on a sleepy lawn. I even welcome the rain and its new spring smell! And rain boots are not just a necessity here – they are a way of life :)

  84. Severin says:

    Spring propels us forward; we shed our cloaks, and with each layer an opportunity to show a facet of ourselves with whom we have not been acquainted. How lucky we are…

    This spring is going to be a very monumental to me. Rejuvenation, healing,peace, new beginnings and focus.

  86. rachel_tennis23 says:

    Spring means rebirth, youth, and beauty. As Shakespeare wrote in The Two Gentlemen of Verona,

    Which now shows all the beauty of the sun,
    And by and by a cloud takes all away.”

    Spring? The The hits it for me:

    In our lives we hunger for those we cannot touch
    All the thoughts unuttered & all the feelings unexpressed
    Play upon our hearts like the mist upon our breath
    But awoken by grief, our spirits speak:
    “How could you believe that the life within the seed
    That grew arms that reached
    And a heart that beat
    And lips that smiled
    And eyes that cried
    Could ever die?”
    Here come the blue skies
    Here comes springtime
    When the rivers run high & the tears run dry
    When everything that dies
    Shall rise
