Spring means different things to different people and of course, it means different things depending on where you live. For example, if you reside in the country and on a property the start of spring means many new additions to your stock levels with baby lambs and calves being born. This is a busy time for farmers.
Whereas if you live in a large town or city the start of spring means warmer weather, longer days and the thought of packing away those winter clothes. Also the thought of soon being able to go to the beach and have a swim, of course, there are always the died hard swimmers that swim all year around, but they are not the majority!
