I love spring. It’s my second favorite season. So, here in the Pacific Northwest, spring generally means a slow in the rainy wintery season. I love that we can get back out and enjoy the incredible views in the area. So, a breakdown of some of my top things to do in Spring, here we go.
- Walking at the historical sites. I love going to the historical sites in the area. In the spring they are just beautiful with all the trees coming into bloom. This photo is from a past year when we were enjoying Fort Vancouver.
- Geocaching. Something my husband and I do, both in the city and out in the country. It’s great to be out and moving but when it’s light for longer than when I’m at work, I tend to make more use of the app on our phones to head out and see what we can discover.
- Going to get plants and flowers for the house. This is when we get more roses, houseplants and others. There’s a lot of repotting which essentially, I’m making a mess but hey…I’m happy. We have a lot of fantastic nurseries near us that we utilize. I do try to get at least one new plant/flower a year that I’ve never cared for before, not sure what it will be this year but I’m excited anyway.
- I have an app for different walking trails in the country and so we do different ones, again, starting in the spring when it’s lighter for a decent portion of the time. We pick different ones throughout the PacNorwest and just go for a day or two.
- Flea Markets/Farmer’s Markets the one near us starts this month. We’re ready. I didn’t go so much last year but I’m ready again this year. We have a red wagon that we take because…I need my hands free to try all the things and I’m not about to carry all the fruits/etc around while we walk for a few hours.
