I have only ever lived in Central Florida, and love springtime here because everything starts blooming. Since I’ve lived nowhere else, I’m not sure what is blooming around the country. What are the first blooms of spring where you live?
Here’s ours (and they are everywhere right now!):

I don’t have a comprehensive list, but our daffodils came up the other day :).

Ha. ha. ha. Apparently 10 cm of snow is a sign that spring is soon near.
But seriously, when all the snow starts melting.

I love redbud trees!
Here is what is blooming in my front yard…
And also some yellow daffodils!

We have the daffodils, the dogwood, and then the forsythia!
It’s true spring when the forsythia bloom.

Oh I forgot to add – the birds chirping! I am hearing them more and more each day and I love that! It makes me feel like it will be warm any day now

First, I see daffodils coming up…. then I am an itching, crying, sniffling, sneezing, swollen-eyed mess because of those stupid Bradford Pear trees that I am almost deathly allergic to. Right now I can feel my eyes getting slightly itchy which is the first sign of doom. Curse you allergies! Why can’t I enjoy the beautiful spring?!
@PitBulLover: Birds chirping is my favorite first sign, they’re so cute and I miss them in the winter! (Except for that one f*ing bird that loves to chirp screech outside my window at 5am. He’s a jerkface.)

Birds chirping, snow melting, and me pulling out my flip flop bin 🙂

@EVERYONE: Seriously? Flowers and Birds? I should post some pictures of this WASTELAND I am currently living in. 🙁 2 more months till flowers!

I think that the first bloom that we get up here is the Dandilions! The sad part is that by that time I am so sick of snow and cold that I am actually happy to see them.
@sceeder: I totally get how you are feeling!

@LaurenK0105: i HATE the Bradford Pear trees!! Why are they all over the entire DC area? Once you smell the Bradford Pear you know it is spring. You also know you should buy a pair of nose plugs or something because its terrible! They are very pretty but boy do they stink!

There are these trees on the way to work (I seriously have no idea what they are) that tend to bud and flower before anything else does. I seriously start watching those branches in late February to reassure myself that Spring is definitely coming!
As I kid I loved winter–you got to play in the snow and there was the possibility of school closing! As an adult winter is a miserable depressing nusiance (unless we’re talking about skiing!).
Come on spring!

@Lily2323: I get so pumped for the first dandillion. I am like yes! If I was waiting for leaves and flowers to bloom I’d be waiting till June.
