Sign of spring

Do you have anything special going on in your city, town, neighbourhood that "declares" that now it's spring? Some event, happening that is annual and is an unofficial sign of spring coming?

In Gothenburg, where I live it's when students from the University of technology, Chalmers, goes out on the streets in their white robes and "student hats" and sell programs for the upcoming parade they hold every April 30th.
When you get "harrassed" by those in every corner and they try to sell you the program, then it's spring!

So what is your unofficial sign of spring?

Basically people go outside! I mean the way Spring happens here is that it rains and rains and rains and then the sun comes out and (I won't go on a bio tangent here, cos something tells me nobody gives a shit) BAM! Everything is bright and green and beautiful.

We went for a run at the local park today, and they had a warning in the city paper that they have found several poisonous snakes at the park and to be aware. We didn't see any, but something slivered into the lake as we ran over one of the wooden bridges.

Every year in our town we have what is called a May Mart. It's for 2 days in May where there are vendors selling craft items,foods, and flowers to plant. There is also some local entertainment that goes along with it.

flowers flowers flowers. it is huge here. people in my neighborhood (except for me) all have lawn services that seem to come in overnight and fill everyone's lawns with amazing flowers. i know they are not bulbs blooming there because mine are bulbs and not out yet.

anyway, we live about 1/2 mile from a Botanical Conservatory and all of my neighbors are old people who are wealthy. They are ALL on the board at this Conservatory and I swear they have this flower mafia that hooks them up with the best blooms.

But it's true, their yards are stunning.

When it starts to hit the 90s, that's when I can tell. Haha... really though, I'm with elizabeth. There are flowers blooming all over campus, and I love it! The smell of orange blossoms has to be one of my favorite things. Spring smells lovely here.

You sweat indoors as well as outdoors.

Just another reason why living in Minnesota cracks me up. kyra1 and I spent both Saturday and Sunday afternoons taking picnics down to the Lake of the Isles, and people were out in droves! Wasn't it only last week we had snow on the ground? And now as SOON as the weather turns, we are all OUTSIDE!!! woohoo! I love spring.

There are just as many bicyclists as motor vehicles (at least in my plush Summit Avenue area). Also, like the first snow fall, I think Minnesotans have a tough time getting used to driving in warmer weather.

MISSZOOROPA - I want to come to Gothenburg for the parade! Sounds like a wonderful day for a parade (April 30) - and I have family there.
